It should not need to be staked or caged to grow it successfully. This tomato will produce fruit for an extended period of time. If you are growing this plant in a container, a 12″ diameter (3 gallon volume) is the minimum necessary size. The ideal size would be a 14″ to 18″ (5-7 gallon) container.

Maintenance Notes:

Goodhearted is a determinate plant, which means this tomato does not grow as large as indeterminate tomatoes.  They will need to be kept from getting excessively dry. Consistent watering and regular fertilization will be key to keeping your plant in full production mode. They can be grown in containers, a minimum of 10 inches in diameter is suggested.  They should not need staking or a tomato cage, but support can be used if necessary.  These plants have good disease resistance and with proper care should provide fruit throughout the season. Scout for tomato pests and treat the plants if necessary.
