My daughter bought one of the new upside-down tomato plants this year, but got frustrated with it and ended up planting it in her garden instead. Have you ever tried growing one of these? Was it, or is it, a sucess?Karen

Hi Yugasini. These "Upsidedown Tomatoes" come in a container and grow from the bottom of it rather than the top. I've seen beautiful pictures of ones with many ripe tomatoes on them. But my daughter gave up on hers and put it in the ground. They are something new to me. I might try it next year :) So you had a garden as a child? I learned a lot about gardening when I was a child from my parents and from my grandpa, who lived with us. Have a good day! Karen

Hi Karen! I have not tried growing tomato plants upside down. Though, I grew normal tomato plants in my terrace garden. I found that it took considerable time for tomatoes to grow on the plants. I then thought it would be better to buy tomatoes from the market, instead of growing it, with lot of labour.....LOL!

Hi D...they do take time. I'm growing one plant, a large one, of tomatoes on my patio this year. I've had three ripe ones, very delicious. They are a brand called "Early Girl." But yes, the store is always an option or the farmer's market :) Karen

its my first time to heard of an upside-down tomato plant. sounds interesting though. so how do you plant it? and why is it called upside-down, roots are out and the fruit under the ground? hehehe am just joking. but really, am curious. ann

Karen where have you been I've been telling everyone about my upside down tomato and the fact that it is at least one week ahead of the regular in the ground ones. I got the first red one picked yesterday.

LOL, I saw that, Pat, but only after I posted this as a discussion. I'm glad yours is doing so well. I want to try one next year. I have picked two of my Early Girls in the past few days, and they are totally delicious. Very few seeds! Karen

Hello Cookie...hers is doing fine in the ground. But I've seen glorious pictures of the upside down ones. I don't think it would be a bad buy. I might try one next year, but this year, I have a huge tomato plant growing in a pot on my patio. Karen
