Tomato maskotka

Hello all.  I have grown these tomatoes from seed (they were free in the Gardeners’ World magazine). I now have 10 healthy looking plants. The packet instructions says they can be planted out in patio tubs or baskets. Can you tell me how deep the patio tub should be. I’ve not grown tomatoes before so am a novice to this. I attach some photos. Many thanksMany thanks

    As big as possible - 7 litre minimum I'd suggest
    The plants will grow quickly and use whatever space you provide.
    In hot weather baskets may need watering twice a day, and a bigger basket will hold more water.
    I grew Maskotka a few years ago and found it one of the better tasting tumblers.
    I didn't find it suitable for a basket - I put 1 in an 16" basket and it went upwards nearly 3ft! before bushing out. I did get hundreds of fruits from it though.
    I thought they would work much better in a patio tub.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
