Growing a tomato plant from seed.

Question by daisy: Senior gardeners, what is the best tomato plant that will grow well…..?
….that will grow well in a pot and produce good fruit. The Compari plant had last year gave a very small yield, almost like cherry tomatoes, tho they were sweet and good. This plant will get the most sun at noon until dusk when it’s quite hot.
Will it need any extra care besides tomato food?
Plus….when picking a whole watermelon or cantaloupe from the store, how can I tell if it’s ripe and ready to eat? I’ve been a city girl all my life and need advice on some things.

I only grow tomatoes that ripen very soon like 56 days since we have a short season. Early Girl or cherry are earliest.
Cantaloupe look at the stem area and smell it. If it is moldy skip it, if it smells like cantaloupe it is ripe. Gently press the flesh and it should slightly give but not be dimpled.
Watermelon should be held on the flat of your hand and tapped to hear the sound. Hollow sounding in early season means it is ripe, late season hollow might mean overripe. If you are tone deaf look at the bottom of the melon and you will see a flat area of yellow where it laid on the ground. Larger area means it is riper.
