Pot size for Floridity baby plum tomatoes?

OryxOryx Posts: 6
I grew a couple of these last year and loved them. This year I'm growing lots more but I can't remember what size pot they need and can't find any info anywhere on the internet. Can anyone advise? (Pot size in litres would be especially helpful...)

    I used to grow tomatoes in pots and used 22L pots - probably a bit OTT, but at least they didn't dry out quite so quickly.
    I'd say anything from 15L to 20L would suit

    Not heard of that variety before, but reviews are good

    Thanks for that Pete. Since they're baby plum tomatoes, I'm thinking smaller, but will go for as big as possible. Gardening - so much guesswork!

    The fruits maybe small, but the plant will be much the same size as any other tomato plant.

    No need to guess - they're are lots of folk here who will be happy to help :)

    Good point! I've just (at last!) found a website that says 1 per 10" pot, so am going for 4 in a large-ish tub, which is probably about 40 litres. Fingers crossed!
