I just ordered some tomato trees. Has anyone had these? Do they really produce tomatoes? I will have to plant them in pots as we cannot have a garden where we live, we rent. We love tomatoes and I hate paying for the overpriced "waxy" tomatoes in stores. Thanks for any advice.

I don't believe the "tomato tree" is related to tomatoes, it just has similar fruit. There is absolutely no reason why you can't grow almost any variety of real tomatoes in a pot, much easier than a tomato tree; indeed, tomatoes are a favorite for container gardening.
For guidance, may I recommend The Tasteful Garden (tastefulgarden.com). My daughter ordered their container gardening equipment and starter plants - tomatoes and herbs - and was delighted with her first harvest last year. She discovered another advantage to container gardening: if you planted in the wrong place (not enough sun, etc), just move it!
I found this online,I have never had one.
