Growing Tomatoes in Containers

Is it okay to plant a Roma tomato plant with a dwarf citrus tree in a wine barrel? Do tomatoes have to be planted all by themselves? I live in San Luis Obispo where everything seems to grow great.

Citrus have numerous fibrous roots close to the surface and resent competition from other plants. The tomato would grow OK, but at the expense of the citrus. (05/25/2010)
