Need a little input for selecting a tomato variety for a little project...
Just to let you know, this is my very first veggie garden, and while all of the raised beds are complete (all plants seem to be doing very well), I still have few seedlings left over. I could not imagine that just about every seed will sprout, so I kept taking care of those leftovers... Finally gave away couple of dozens 15"-20" seedlings at work.
I love this site, so much helpful and fascinating information can be found here! Stumbled on a link here to the [url=https://earthtainer.tomatofest.com/]Earthtainer System II[/url]. I would love to try it since I have few plants left still.
Will be placed on the back deck of the house, I get about 11-12 hours of sun.
What variety would you recommend from what I have left based on productivity/hardiness to sun (summers in VA can be HOT)... What I still have (various sizes)
Black Cherry (late germination, smallest ones)
No experience with either variety in the terms of growing here... Black Tula and Bull's heart are very tasty tomatoes (memories from growing up in Russia). But somehow, I'm almost leaning toward the Belgian Giant heirloom due to it's unusually large size and pink color fruits... I would have no issues to support this plant (if it is truly this big) - I have heavy duty 6' cage (and can extend it if needed), pot will be up in the corner, so stability of the pot is not an issue either, since I could tie it down to the railing...
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
