Question: 

When purchasing tomato plants, are big or small plants better?

Answer: 

When purchasing tomato plants at your local greenhouse or garden center, select stocky, dark green plants.  Plants should be 6 to 10 inches tall with stems about pencil-size in thickness.  Avoid large plants with flowers and fruit.  Early fruit development will stunt plant growth and reduce total yield.
