Balcony Tomato

I’ve seen the Balcony Tomato listed under a few other names, like “Tomato Patio Princess Hybrid”, both in catalogs owned by Burpee’s.

It was developed for container growing, so it makes a very compact shrub, that hangs out over the pot in a nice fashion. I found it to be too tightly grown…almost deformed-looking. it was hard to keep pest free and harvest the many tomatoes it produced because of this. it was also more susceptible to the tiny green web worms that chew leaves and make webs. The tomatoes were small and not fantastic enough to deal with the worms.

General traits: 

  • color: red
  • size: 3-4 oz
  • shape: round
  • matures in 65-68 days
