I ran into someone the other day who is using topsy turvey to grow tomatoes, peppers, and several other things, and he said his plants are going CRAZY. He said they turn upwards but eventually grow back downwards because of the weight. He also said the stems are HUGE, probably also due to the weight ( I suppose).

I heard that TTs are fair to ok, with the occasional screaming success. Apparently, the real winner is smaller, multiple fruiting stuff; like the peppers, as evidenced above, and also cherry/small type tomatoes.

The smaller fruit put much less stress on the plant structure, or something.

Better/more even weight distribution maybe!

Juliet is a hybrid?  Acch, thanks for telling me.  It is doing well for me, so it's disappointing to know I won't be able to save the seeds.
