Best container tomatoes for SoCal
So I finally have the space to grow a container or two of tomatoes for the very first time ever and would like to ask for recommendations. I'm in Glendale, CA, which I guess is zone 9 or 10. I'll be using 5 gallon buckets and wanted to know what kind of tomatoes would work.
I know that determinate varieties are supposed to be smaller and work better in containers but I would really prefer an indeterminate I think, because I don't want to just have one short harvest period. Unless there are some determinates that harvest over a longer period? I would also prefer larger sized tomatoes that I could slice for sandwiches or cook with, not cherry tomato size.
Are there tomatoes that you know of that would fit these criteria? And when should I be planting the tomatoes as well?
Thanks to anyone that can provide advice!
