As an experiment, I grew Bursztyn indoors over the winter in front of a large, south-facing window without any additional lights. Despite the challenging conditions (short days, smallish pot) it performed beautifully! The plant is a compact determinate (about 3' high) and produces loads of gold colored, golf ball (and slightly larger) sized tomatoes. They have a nice, well balanced flavor. This is a great early season tomato.
