Red Robin was developed by the Sakata Seed company. It is a hybrid that was designed for basket use and seed cannot be saved (the company told me this when I inquired about that possibility) as the F2 generation would vary and not be the same as the parent plant. Still trying to grow this variety as seed purchased online did not produce the expected Red Robin "type", plant grew to be 2 feet tall, fell over (so not the sturdy tree type described) and produced orange tomatoes rather than red. Am trying again from a different seed source. I have seen this planted listed an an open pollinated heirloom which is inaccurate as hybrid status is confirmed.

This little plant is highly ornamental. I had 4 in pots on my patio and ended up with one because I gifted the others to people that oooed and ahhhed over them. They'd make a great gift for "retired" or handicapped gardeners with a sunny window.

Lots of DELICIOUS cherry tomatoes for such a small plant. It does best in a pot outdoors, but a very sunny window lets it do alright inside. Ours even produce amazingly well in the shade, though they're leggier than the ones on the sun.
I highly recommend this variety for anyone who has to stick to container gardens.

A nice cherry type tomato that is quite happy in a pot. It even will produce in less than favorable conditions, making it a nice tomato for an indoor windowsill. There will not be as many tomatoes, and the flavor will lack a bit, but you can actually get tomatoes inside from this plant.
The picture is a good example of this variety. Short, stocky plants with fruit held in tight clusters.

This is a prolific bearer, and is best grown in a a 10 inch pot.
Does not seem to like an open garden environment, and is ideal in a pot on a patio or similar. Very sweet and very hardy plant.
Comes back true to type each year from seed taken from ripe fruit.
