There must be some name confusion because my Siberian is supposed to have lots of small tomatoes on a small vine. It is supposed to be an early semi determinant which will set fruit in cold weather. I have noticed that the vines are staying small compared to my other plants.

I'll have to see what size the fruits are.

Not to be confused with another tom named Siberia, which is reputed to be inferior in all aspects.

Matures: 70 Days. Siberia. Truly a giant from the Siberian need to outdo the neighbor for largest tomato. Spectacular huge round pink 1-2 lb. fruits can be expected from vines that reach 7 ft.
