    I don't agree... at least not always.  Last year we grew
heirloom tomatoes in our market garden and their height was
only limited by the height of the stakes we had to tie them to.
This was especially true for the Yellow Brandywines.  My guess is
that this is true for indeterminates, which is all we grow.  It
is true our soil was well manured, but we certainly didn't lack for
tomatoes, suffer from blossom drop, or have small tomatoes.
