Best Tomatoes for Windy Areas?
I have a lovely rooftop garden where I grow veggies and herbs in two 15' x 3' x 3' containers. During my first year, I found the South Carolina coastal winds to be a problem for my tomatoes. The force of the wind banged my branches against their cage, causing splitting and bruising. The leaves and the fruit appeared somewhat shriveled and stunted. I tried the ready-made cages, as well as building wire trellises.
Can anyone suggest a wind-resistant variety of tomatoes I could try? I have nothing but shade on the ground level, so that's not an option.
