Tiger Tom Certified Naturally Grown Seed

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 fruit average about six ounces each, are globe-shaped, and have yellow-orange stripes on red-orange skin. The flavor is rich with a very good balance sharp and sweet.

'Tiger Tom' reportedly originated from a Czechoslovakian tomato breeder finding its way into the collection of the late Ben Quisenberry before eventually being shared among seed collectors and seed savers. Our original sample was received from Ray Yoder of Pennsylvania in 1999.

It is similar to, and some believe a synonym for, an old English greenhouse variety known there as 'Tigerella' and 'Mr. Stripey'. This English 'Mr. Stripey' is not to be confused with the large, bi-color beefsteak-type variety also named 'Mr. Stripey'). Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Lots of fruit
Fun and easy to grow with nearly 100% germination. These abundant fruits came earlier than my other varieties. Somewhat prone to cracking and sensitive to irregular watering. A little prone to early blight in my area.
