Have you grown Chocolate Lightning?

Hello Tomato Growers!

I have limited seed starting space, so I always buy a couple additional tomato and pepper seedlings from local farms. Well, this year the tomatoes that I thought I was going to buy were a bit leggier than I wanted, so I ended up bringing home a 'Chocolate Lightning', since it was a nice stalky plant and is a dwarf variety, so won't get enormous. I intend to grow it in a large container.

How big should I expect it to get in a container? How much staking does it need? I want to plan accordingly, while it's still smallish and easy to add stakes/ladders.

Thanks all!
