Growing tomatoes in container

Are Romas too large to grow successfully in a 20-25 gallon pot? If not, how large should the plant b before I put it in the large pot?

I've grown them in much smaller containers without any problems, other than those darn squirrels, of course

That is a very large container. The only thing to watch out for is that much soil can hold water for a long time. You just need to be careful not to overwater, especially while the weather is still cool-ish and damp.

Re: Growing tomatoes in container

Yeah...that's plenty big enough. I've had success growing various tomatoes in 15-gallon pots, and I have four tomato plants in similarly sized pots again this year.
