and at moment takes 3 growing years to rotate through all if I wanted I guess a hobby needs wings ....LOL

Will have to order a some of the previously mentioned Large fruited from Tatiana`s Today .

Bah ! then I had to move for more central location and great opportunity .

so While garden ..continued all plans were reset and delayed at least 6-9 months.

The pot was a tree pot and is 18 inches across and 15 inches high. Here a view of the other side of the plant.

No heirloom is more productive for me than Crnkovic Yugoslavian. This one is 2-stem in a 10gal poly bag and currently +30 golf ball to soft ball size fruit set. Catfacing or BER on less than 5% of the toms has been my experience over the last 2 seasons.

Berkley Tie Die Pink is very good for containers. It's not particularly small but not huge either. It has the advantage that it doesn't have the usual problems of container growing (magnesium deficiency and micronutrients).
First truss this year: 12 fruits softball size perfectly shaped (3 kg from that one truss), had to support it with 3 additional strings. The production potential is lower than Crnkovic (nothing really is higher) but it is definitely more beginner friendly. It does have some slight BER tendency but not too bad. And the taste is top 3 (if you prefer a more acidic bite).

Default Prudens Purple Plant

Hi Blackbear,
Never mind about the Prudens Purple in a container. This is my first year growing it and I have noticed by looking at YouTube and other photos that it does not look like a potato leaf variety. It also has a great big green Oxheart tomato coming in. I went by the label on the seed packet. Looks like another hybrid tomato plant. Oh well, it will be eaten by me and probably the neighbors who have been eyeing the tomato plant and asking me about it. Wish I could have given you a good tomato plant reference.

Not sure how large you mean by large fruited variety, but I have grown Sophies Choice and Azoychoka in those size containers and they produce very well.
