Lucky Tiger Tomato

         
 
8 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
This is an elongated, green-when-ripe tomato that will mature to dark green with red striping. This tomato gets high marks for flavor: tangy, sweet and complex with tropical notes and balanced acidity. Lucky Tiger has great market gardening potential. It stands out in the market display and is well suited for both greenhouse and field growing.

What are the pros? extremely flavorful,nice yield

What are the cons? cracks, hard to tell when ripe

Review:

You can tell this has been carefully selected for flavor! Even under cooler, suboptimal conditions, the fruit tasted wonderful, which is not very common for tomatoes. Two challenges with this variety: 1) cracks, even when not over-watered and 2) very susceptible to disease (only plant showing significant fungal disease out of 14 varieties). If you have rainy, wet summers, this might not be the best variety for you. Nevertheless, the flavor and yield make up for all the shortcomings, and without a doubt, I will grow this one again next year. Right after the fruit turns greenish-yellow, wait a few more days before picking (weather dependent of course). It seems if you let them hang on the vine after they turn color, these tomatoes can get very sweet. Once it's slightly soft to the squeeze, it's ready to go, that's how I figured out how to pick them!

What are the pros? Gorgeous

What are the cons? MAYBE a tad bit slow to bear??

Review:

First year growing these. I forgot they aren't the usual color so have been waiting for a while for them to ripen (my mistake - lost many to spoilage in the beginning). HEAVY bearing, strong vines of 6-7 feet tall. Toms are striped light jade suffused with amber when ripe but hold the firmness and, as "grape" type tomatoes go, they have a nice thick , sweet flesh. Excell in canning: marinated tomatoes, salsa, chutneys and marmalade. Great starter canvas for an appetizer plate. Absolutely scrumptious! Beautiful and unusual. Keep better than most cherry toms: outdid black cherry and bumblebees in side by side trial. I planted 3 and they fed a family of 5 all summer plus canning and given away to a delighted family and neighbor crowd. Will definitely be growing them again this year!

What are the pros? Great Flavor, very sweet

What are the cons? low production

Review:

This tomato doesn't grow as well as the other cherries that I am growing this year but the flavor makes up for the slower growth and lower production!

Excellent Surprise Hit

What are the pros? flavor is outstanding

What are the cons? thick skin, but who cares!

Review:

These have been the big surprise keeper this year. I actually got a few of these seeds from a friend and just planted them on a whim. These need to be blushed with red for best ripeness and let me tell you these will be grown in my garden from now on. Very surprised by how delicious these are as they really cover the spectrum of tastes from sweet, acidic, sour to savory with a perfect delicious balance. I don't care much for the thick skin of grape tomatoes but I can ignore it because of the incredible flavor. I have not had any cracking as others have mentioned. Average days to maturity. Cut in half with salt; a delicacy.
