Patio hybrid is excellent for containers and small gardens, bearing tasty 3 to 4 oz tomatoes on strong, compact plants that grow only 2 feet tall. The stout stems generally do not need much staking at first, but it won’t hurt to have stake or small cage to keep them upright in wind and rain, especially when loaded with fruit.
