This plant wintersowed nicely. I am not overly impressed with it's performance though. I have it in a hanging planter. I will probably try something different next year.

Harvest Moon (seed vendor) says, .......

" The Tumbling Tomato! Ideal for growing in baskets, containers and windowboxes, where you will be rewarded with bumper crops of delicious fruits in summer. Easy to grow, naturally trailing, needs no stopping or sideshooting. "

Actual garden test trials with Italian seed purchased from Harvest Moon spanning three consecutive seasons have proven 'Gartenperle,' to be an uneventful and unspectacular tomato.

I have deleted 'Gartenperle' from future plantings based on its mediocre taste and sub-avarage performance. It is unworthy of its space.
