FYI: Indeterminate means the plant will keep growing, get quite large, and keep setting flowers and fruit until frost.

Staking and caging are strongly recommended!

Determinate varieties are plants that are compact and only grow to a pre-determined size such as Bush Goliath. Fruits generally ripen all together for one large harvest. A stake or a cage should be sufficient, not both. These varieties are great for patios and small yards.
The disease resistance identification codes shown below can found on seed packet listings.

This what heirloom varieties do not have. So when growing heirloom varieties be prepared for some challenges, but most times the flavor of an heirloom makes up for those challenges.
