it is over five gallons but I don't know how much exactly do you think I could switch the plant out with enough people of course to a bigger pot?

5 gallons is pretty small, thats the minimum size I'd use for ONE cherry tomato plant personally. For bigger, like the Cherokee, I'd aim for a minimum of 10-15gal, maybe even more, and only use one plant per container. I use 10 gallon containers, but the roots grow out the bottom into the ground anyhow as I have them in the yard, if they were on cement I'd go bigger. Gotta give those roots room to spread out.
