"Patio" Tomato

Hi,

I was given this tomato transplant called "Patio". I am guessing it is a dwarf tomato. I looked it up on google and what I found says it will reach about 2-2 1/2 feet in size. But I am not sure I found the right one in the first place.

Has anyone grown this variety? Does it stay small, does the fruit taste good etc? Thinking about putting it in a gallon container (is that suitable)?

I planted mine in a 7 gallon container. i would personally plant it in atleast 5 gallon.

Yeah I read another link somewhere that said it would reach a foot to a foot an a half. I think there are several "patio" tomatoes all under the same common name. I have it in a gallon container now. I will see what happens and transplant again if needed. I never planned on it but I got 7 dwarf tomatoes as of right now.

I was telling myself this year that I would only do like 3 tomato plants and here I am with 10.
