I've grown this plant every year since I got seed in 2009. The tomatoes have a nice mild flavour. My friends all ask for plants each year. When I was given a Balconi Yellow plant last year, I couldn't tell the difference between the plants or fruit. The sturdy plant keeps producing fruit until the sunlight in Northern Canada becomes too weak in the winter. The plant always does well in a 10" pot. This variety has never gotten any of the diseases that sometimes hit my other varieties.

Have not grown. Plant to. Description is this: Hahms Gelbe Topftomate' is an unusual, German, dwarf tomato variety that grows like gangbusters in an 8-12" pot. This variety produces legions of golden cherry-sized fruit on ornate, rugose foliage.
Unlike most dwarf varieties this one is tasty, not bland. Pictures look beautiful upon 'googling'.
