Hi! In the city of Ben Lomond, California, there is a wonderful farm called Love Apple Farm. They specialize in heirloom tomatoes, 125 varieties for sale to take home and plant in your garden. Beautiful farm, helpful tips free, all organic, too. Good luck in Zone 7.

a) no harder than other tomatoes, generally

b) yes, by mail order; maybe, at local greenhouses (tomatoes are easy from seed, too)

c) if the pot is large enough;the larger, the more fruit. Try 5 gallon buckets. Be sure to drill drainage holes.

I grew heirloom tomatoes one year, I am sorry I don't recall the names. I did find they produced later in the season, and not many fruits either. Maybe it was the type I chose? It was interesting, but I would not do it again!
