As the name indicates,Tip Top is shaped like a spinning top.They are small plum sized tomatoes and are pretty much determinate in my garden,with limited production after the main flush of fruit.They don't sprawl,so would be ideal for containers.

The fruits are tasty and not dry at all.The walls are meaty,so they dry nicely though.Great in salads ,salsas and for canning.
