Default Esmerald Golosina OK size plant for container?

I could have sworn I asked this already, but I searched and searched and couldn't find it.

I'm trying an Esmeralda Golosina plant this year, and I seem to recall being told that it's a manageable size to put in a large container.

The seedlings I started are very vigorous and were even outpacing my Yellow Brandywine for a while, so I'm a little concerned, but maybe they're just fast out of the gate?

I found Esmeralda Golosina to be a bit compact compared to other indeterminates. I think you can easily grow EG in a container of at least 5 gal.

Thanks! Anything in the 5' or under range (maybe even 6') and not super bushy/sprawling is OK for my larger containers.

Esmeralda Golosina grew 5-6' tall when I grew it. It didn't grow a wide plant - around 2.5' around.
