This is not the one I am referring to. I am referring to Frogsleap Farms version.

Read the blog and it's only at the F4 so no time soon as I see it.

But who knows for sure.

It just occured to me, I'm slow on some days, that we now have two varieties with the same name. And the one I found at Tania's site looks to be about the same size as Steve's, so maybe they are the same since Tania also sources the variety to Russia as does Steve.

I can't really estimate the size of the one that Mark shows, but I'm not concerned about that, just that there are two varieties with the same name.

Perhaps the folks at Frogsleep Farm might go with "Bengal Tiger" instead? ;-)

Mine was a working name, so no problem changing. Unfortunately the lateral striping phenotype (I am assuming controlled by Fs) is very significantly influenced by environment. I still have advanced lines from this cross (BKing x P20), but none that look quite like this, or that match the name Siberian Tiger.

I think if the one tomato is Russian, we should go honor its original name, and not go by its translated name.

I see the Frogsleap's Siberian Tiger have been already discussed in quite a few places, and folks posted pictures. Changing the name may be a bit confusing after it 'escaped', no?

Mark, how stable it may be by now?

I looked up the Russian tomato. It is called 'Amurskiy Tigr' (translates 'Amur Tiger', or Siberian Tiger')
