Siberian Tiger - Mark McCaslin

So, I was fortunate enough to get some of the Siberian Tiger seeds a few years ago. I know that Mark McCaslin wasn't comfortable enough with their stability at that time but, as you can see, they are doing quite well. They hadn't shown any anthocyanin striations until recently as I'd let my plants sprawl and they were under the foliage. Two days ago I staked them and, since being exposed to the sun, they've begun to stripe up. Below are the pictures.

Having to pull them early thanks to pesky Mockingbirds. This is the Siberian Tiger beginning to blush.

There's nothing with picking them early. It saves them not only from the mockingbirds, but the tomato fruitworms, leaf-footed bugs and stink bugs.

I can't get anyone I know to eat the blue tomatoes. They are convinced the portions that remain blue (really, it is purplish) are somehow rotten or bad. I grow Indigo Rose as a novelty, but it really isn't worth the space it occupies other than to wow people with its blue tones.

Dawn, this one is pretty good. Lots of production and good taste.
