70 days, indeterminate
— 'Tiger Tom' has become a favorite in our kitchen garden and enjoyed as a snacking or salad type. It is very early and usually one of the first to ripen in our garden and is very prolific. The juicy fruits average about six ounces each, are globe-shaped, and have yellow-orange stripes on red-orange skin. The flavor is very good and rich, sharp and sweet.
'Tiger Tom' originated from a Czechoslovakian tomato breeder, found its way into the late Ben Quisenberry's collection, eventually finding its way to seed collectors and seed savers. It is similar to, and may be the same English greenhouse variety known as 'Tigerella' or 'Mr. Stripey' (but not to be confused with the large, bi-color variety also named 'Mr. Stripey
'). Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
