This is a very prolific plant. It grows a little over 3 ft. Buy seeds from florida tomat growers. This plant needs caging. Goes a little nuts. Put a handful of colorburst fertilizer with a handful of bone meal. really helps flowering potential. Grows well in 5 gallon pot. Hope this helps.

I love sprite tomatoes. Very sweet little red grape type tomatoes born in abundance on small plants. I grew my one plant summer 2008 in an earth box with plenty room to spare. This would be a great patio plant, with no sacrifice on flavor. They have great firmness which gives you a nice snap when you pop them into your mouth and bite down.

Tastes like the pricey sweet grape tomatoes at the grocery store, but a notch above. Productive 3 ft plants. Easy to grow, would work well in a container.
