I've grown this both in hanging baskets and "upside-down" planters. Cherry size tomatoes ok for salads, but just average flavor.

Tom has looked great since coming home from the "hardware" store. Lots of yellow blooms and lots of tomatoes from early season. However the leaves look bad; almost silver color that has lost their pretty green color. What shall I do? Please let me know.

I don't know if this is the same as the tumbler, but it doesn't seem to be. Got it from T&M. Flavour was dissapointing, also had trouble growing it in my soil, pH was around 7-7.5, that may be why.
