I'm growing them inside and need to know if they will A) fruit inside B) need a bigger pot or C) can be pruned to keep under control. Ive gone to many garden stores and no one seems to know anything but the basics. HELP PLEASE!!!

Doubtful that you will get any decent tomatoes from an inside plant, but
A) Yes they can produce fruit inside.
B) 5 gallon pot is very minimum IMHO.
C) Yes, can be pruned to control growth size.

I just searched this subject and found a few bits of information related to greenhouse grown tomatoes. One article stated that the flowers should be hand pollinated between 11:30 and 2:30, midday, with humidity between 65 and 70% for the best results. Sounds pretty tricky.
