Worthwhile patio tomatoes?

Sally599 | Apr 16, 2009 10:54 AM

Last year, I grew the "patio" cultivar of tomatoes, I harvested all of two the whole summer----now they were tasty and the plant never got very big which was desirable but the yield was pretty small. I don't really like brushing up against tomato foliage so I'd rather have a smaller plant and I like a high acid tomato. Anyone have favorite varieties that are worth while, producing early and often. I'm considering the hanging basket versions that are along the lines of cherry tomatoes because they always seem to have a lot of fruit but I'd rather have a more normal size/non-sweet tomato if possible.
