Bought two "Bonnie" brand grape tomato plants from the local Home Depot, planted them in early May. After they established we gave them light weekly feedings with liquid fertilizer. They grew like mad and fruited heavily, with ripe tomatoes from late June until October. Fruit are very sweet and best eaten out of hand. Give them room, they will easily get four feet wide and, if you have a big and strong enough trellis, eight feet tall. They will climb up the front of the trellis and then grow down the back. No disease problems, but they do need water twice a week.
