  • Micro Tina Tomato

    Progress for my little Tina's, seed originally was gifted to me by a wonderful lady Jeannine. My seed stock was getting on in age so I'm very glad to have been growing these this winter and plan to save seed. These are a red micro growing tomato similar to Micro tom and were also bred by the University of Florida. The seed was started on 7/11/19 and grown on under lights, 2 plants potted up eventually to 1 litre pots.

      A hint of colour perhaps?

      Yes, just the faintest touch, amazingly it has already deepened in just a day. Micro Blue shows no sign as yet.

      Exciting! How tall are the plants now? Still under lights?

  • #3
    Yes, they are still under lights and I think about 6 inches tall not including the pot.

        Thank you, I've been enjoying taking them, they grow so quickly it's good to be able to look back on their progress.

      The first ripening fruit is a nice colour now and a couple more fruits turning too. I'll hopefully save seed from some of these fruits.

        Oh this is a wonderful sight to see. Congratulations. Hope you will get many more fruit and who knows, will they now fruit all of 2020 with their extra early start?

          I suspect they will get a bit tired in time and good indoor growing space will become even tighter so they may get pushed a little to the outer edge. But if they make it through to better weather I can pot them on and put them in a nice sunny sheltered spot or I might pop them in a mixed planter somewhere.

            I think if you keep harvesting the plants instinct is to reproduce it should keep fruiting as long as it has nutrients plus I think it will have a period of rest before growing again.

            Wow! Ripe tomatoes before mid February. And so beautifully cheerily red!
