A couple of tomatoes I got from one of the PL plants in that seed packet. And the plant they came from. None of these plants produced anything other than uniform red tomatoes.

How do the uniform reds taste? And how about tolerance to foliage diseases? Those reds are nice looking!
And what size are those pots -- maybe a 12" "urn" style?

Pots are 24" at top and taper. They tend to tip if they have a tall plant. The plant acts like a sail when a strong wind hits it. I ended up tying adjacent tomato cages to each other and then everything stayed upright regardless of weather. I have many pots due to bought a pallet of 88 for only $.25 each 2 years ago. Not an ideal pot but the price was right.

Taste: Don't know yet. Those reds ripened fast and went soft. My mother made sauce out of them all. I still have some reds and will try to get a taste test on a couple. But they are toms that are "use it now." I think the reds came from the plants that had the regular leaf. I did get red/yellow striated toms from at least one if the potato leaf plants. There were 2 types of plant in that seed packet. And most seemed to be reds. I found some web site selling an Old German that was red not red + yellow.
