Hi, I have indoor garden with 3 x 575watts halide, for a 3 x 9 foot garden. I have germinated some Black Krim, and am planning to grow in 10 gallon containers indoors. Anyone done indoor gardening with tomato?

RE: ?best tomato for indoor growing

I have had some luck with San Marzanos and Principe Borghese. I have a couple of Siberians I'm trying currently. I'm using t-5 lighting. The San Marzanos took longer to bloom and fruit but, it's December in Colorado, 15 degrees outside and we still have fresh tomatoes ;-)

My plants are in my garage and the temperature in Nov-Dec has been 50-60 F in the garage.

Dwarf tomatoes are the best for indoor growing. They now have some that get good size tomatoes up to 8+ oz. That is if you have to use lights.

I found cherry tomatoes good for indoor growing. I have juliets and sun golds right now. I use a mix of lights and windows.
