Review:

I'm fond of the E. European dwarfs because they work well in pots or in closely planted rows and do not overwhelm limited garden space. This tomato grew to 2 ft for me and produced heavily. I did not have problems with blight. However, with such short plants, it's important to water in a manner that prevents the foileage from staying wet all night, especially in a humid summer with frequent rain. I also mulch my plants which prevents splashing and contact with soil microorganisms. For me, Betalux produced well from early mid-season until fearly all and the fruits were flavorful. However with medium to small tomatoes on a short plant, you need to plant several if you like a lot of tomatoes. Solitary plants not shouldered in by others also require minor staking and a simple bamboo stick will do. This would probably be a good variety to try for growing in a greenhouse. The reason I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars is it's a good tomato, but I reserve 5 starts for absolutely the best.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
