Tomato Tumbling Tom Yellow is a cascading sweet yellow cherry tomato suitable for growing in containers & hanging baskets. It produces lots of small but very sweet tasty fruits that have a good balance between sweetness and acidity.
Tomato Tumbling Tom Yellow trusses hang down all sides of a container or hanging basket and as a tumbling bush variety, it doesn't require side shoots pinching out. It is perfect in a hanging basket or pot especially if garden space is at a premium.
Keep picking tomatoes to encourage further fruits to grow & ripen. There is nothing better than eating a sun-warmed tomato straight from the vine.
