Comment: My heirloom tomato plant arrived the other day, I was worried how it would arrive such a small plant being shipped by truck. It arrived in one piece and after watering it it's growing nicely, it is sitting on my window ledge, inside my kitchen, it has grown nicely just after a few days, I will be buying a new pot this week and am already looking forward to enjoying tomatos in a few months.

Comment: I was very happy to receive this tomato plant. It was carefully packaged and the soil was still moist. I was impressed with how thick the stem was and how green the leaves were. I put this Creole tomato in my aeroponics system, which meant I had to wash away all the soil. I was really impressed with how long and healthy-looking the roots were.
