Little Sun Yellow is compact enough for containers on the balcony, back porch, deck, or anywhere else you have sunshine and a foot or two of space. A very vigorous little plant, it sets its huge clusters of 2-ounce fruit very close to the central stem.Ready in just over 2 months, this fruit is yummy -- a good blend of sweets and solids, with a meaty tomato tang.
