The Super Bush that I grew (from Rene's) was a very nice small plant that produced many early fruits without problem. Plants had very sturdy stems, but I did short stake them to keep the tops from falling over with the weighted tomatoes. Good taste for a "Patio" type. I grew in 5 gal. recycle pails, Earthbox (2 plants), and sidewalk edging. All turned out well. If you need a good compact plant, this is it.

Very vigorous and more early than most other tomatoes of its kind. Fruit are typically round and about 3 inches across. Skin is a little tough. Fruit itself is a little on the sugary side, but much more tasty than other earlies I've grown in the past.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor in this tomato. Somehow, I got a prejudice in my head about container or "patio" tomatoes. But the description did say this would be a good tomato and it is indeed! Meaty, juicy, a little sweet. Good tomato taste. Definitely worth growing. A great find for anyone growing in containers. This plant is compact and very sturdy. A minimal amount of staking is required to keep the top heavy plant from flopping over. I did not prune it at all. Lots more tomatoes to come on this plant as well. Had one small tomato with blossom end rot and that has been all.
The two tomatoes shown in my picture are 13 oz and 6 oz. Most on the plant are of the 6 oz size. That is the only big one so far.
