Thanks everyone. I did used ProMix BX, which I believe is what Raybo recommends.

I did notice that the container, which sits on gravel, was not quite level. The side with the filler tube was about 5 degrees higher than the opposite side. Maybe this caused extra water to flow to the side that wicks up the water?

The leaves did show some signs of a nutrient deficiency, so I top dressed with some Tomato Tone and the new growth looks much better, at least on the Momotaro side.

I will give it another month and see if texture and flavor improves with the heat.

It is a shame because the Momotaro tomatoes are perfectly round and unblemished. They could be photographed for a seed website, they just don't taste so good.
