I have been given a small tomato plant and been told it is a tomato tree. I grow my tomatoes in my green house and thought I would treat it the same way as my Gardener Delight plants. From what I have read, it is a perennial that fruits late - in autumn and will need frost protection. Any tips or any thing else I should know about a tomato tree? Thanks.

I should think definitely a GH or conservatory required in winter.
Hi Swiss Sue, Thanks for the link. I have read it and it confirms most of what I knew except for feeding...no feeding appears to be needed and it is not a tomato at all!
No, it's from the tomato family but not a tomato. They can grow into pretty big specimens too.
