After waiting for what I thought were regular sized tomatoes, I got a surprise when they turned red at about 2 inches. I was disappointed at first, but after trying them realized they were excellent.
I did start some beef tomato seedlings so that I will have both. Nothing compares to eating something you have grown yourself! Tomatoes are a breeze.. all you need is lots of water and sun. I bought my first ones as small plants which is what I recommend for beginners like me.
