All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2017

Grow your tomato crop on the balcony or deck this year with Patio Choice. This delightful yellow cherry offers more than 100 mildly flavored fruits in a single, ultra-compact 18-inch plant. You can pop it right into a 10-inch pot, a hanging basket, or even a combo tub with flowering annuals and foliage plants.

Winner of the All-America Selections for its high yields, super-compact size, and unbeatable disease resistance, Patio Choice Yellow is ready in no time, setting its crop all at once to make harvesting even easier. This is a plant that looks as good as it tastes—the 1-inch-diameter cherries weigh in at just half an ounce either, but explode with a rich, juicy, mild bite the whole family will love. And with yields like this, you can eat some of the crop right off the plant and still have plenty for canning, saucing, drying, or freezing.

Patio Choice Yellow stands up to heat, humidity, and rain beautifully, and demonstrates great resistance to three common tomato diseases: tobacco mosaic virus (TMV), verticillium wilt, and Fusarium wilt. If you've tried tomatoes before and gotten only poor yields, Patio Choice Yellow will change your mind about how easy and successful this crop really is.

Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Plant outdoors when danger of frost is past and night temperatures consistently remain above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If an unexpected late frost is forecasted, protect young plants with plastic sheeting or other cover, or simply bring the container indoors.

Very Early

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought these seeds because of the early ripening of only 45 days. They came through with flying colors. My area has problems with tomato diseases so I like to have tomato plants that can give fruit before they succumb to disease. I planted two succession crops. Both performed exceptionally well, and we had tomatoes much earlier than ever before.

We've tried several kinds of tomatoes and this one is by FAR the winner! These are the only ones we're going to grow next year! I planted two of these in a giant pot with some basil plants and they both got really big (if their roots have room, then I suggest using a cage! I ended up rigging some support). It's been NON-STOP tomatoes for months now (first day of fall and I just harvested another 20). There are at least 50 more on the plants now, just ripening. No pests. No disease. I especially love that it's not "one and done", but just keeps going and going! The tomatoes are delicious and the neighbors have already asked if I'll be starting more seeds next year, which of course, I will!

Best Cherry tomato I have ever grown

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Planted several of the "Patio Choice" two years in a row. Since then, I have recommended it to every tomato grower I know. This plant produced great tomatoes all the way through September here in Florida with absolutely no pest or disease problems. The tomatoes are thin skinned and have a great flavor.

High Yield, Tasty Fruit

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I grew these for the first time in 2018. These germinated very well, stayed relatively compact, and produced a TON. In fact, they kept producing well into fall. I grew them in smallish containers with just a little bit of fertilizer. I can’t believe how much these tiny plants produced! The flavor was quite good, too. Really nice balance between sweet and tart. Defintely growing again for 2019!

I'll try this. There is also an heirloom yellow mini-currant tomato which I grow, but it is indeterminate and sprawls all over. It is not resistant to viruses either. So you get a lot of little fruits while the indeterminate plant races across the garden, and the earlier part of the vine dies off. So instead what is described here can provide determinate pot friendy plants which may prove easier to contain and fend off the soil borne virusus, and you can plant seeds in succession at two week intervals to give a consistent crop. These look slughtly bigger than yellow currants. We'll see. . .
