What are the pros? Tolerates cool weather/nights
What are the cons? Small leaves/vine
This has been a cooler spring/summer than usual, but the pink tiger is growing and putting off flowers and setting fruit while none of the other tomato plants are. Night time temps ranging from 47-55 but that doesn't seem to phase this plant. It was started indoors in January in a grow tent and put outside when about a foot tall, towards the end of April.
The one trade-off seems to be that it's more of a 'miniature' tomato vine. The leaves are very small (the entire vine of leaves is about equal to one normal beefsteak tomato leaf), and quite a bit of spacing between nodes.
If you do any indoor growing, this is a great plant for switching between natural sunlight and indoor light fixtures. Most plants stress, stop growing, then have to regrow new leaves when the light source changes. This plant just shook it off and kept growing like nothing happened.
Also clones/roots very easily from a small piece of vine.
Won't know how it tastes for a couple more weeks though.
