I noticed this about a month or so ago in a pot that had a Datura in it. The pot was sitting close to my tomato tubs this year so I guess a bird or squirrel decided to plant their own crop. I've got it in one of my greenhouses now and since there's already a tomato on it I may get more this winter.

It should stay alive easily, Chris. I have them all winter. Mine are seeds from last year that the mice spread around. They love ripe tomatoes! My problem with them is that they grow huge and tall. I had to keep clipping mine back to keep it from taking over the whole greenhouse.

I figured it would as long as I kept it warm enough this winter, watered and fed. Of course it's not going to get as much sun as it would in the spring/summer but I should be able to get a few tomatoes off of it.
