Most commercial Tomato plants are Determinate, meaning that they have a determined, defined period of flowering and fruit development.  They usually have compact bushes or plants that top off at a specific height and bear their full crop of tomatoes all at once. Determinant Tomato types normally stop growing when the tomato fruit ripens. 


Determinant Vined Tomatoes are often good choices for growing in baskets or containers.
