Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum)

Everyone should grow tomatoes! Days to harvest, size of plant and fruit size vary by type. Indeterminate types grow tall and vine-like with a long season of harvest while determinate types stay shorter/more compact & tend to ripen all at once.

Care: full sun – light shade, fertile, warm soil (60 degrees), moderate water needs, transplants are common but can be started indoors from seed, benefits from mulch & calcium, grows in ground or large containers, needs support.

Best in full sun (cherry types tolerate partial sun), needs rich, slightly acidic soil with a good amount of calcium (bone meal), should be planted in warm soil (at least 60 degrees). Give stake or cage for support at planting time & pinch off suckers as they grow. Monitor regularly for pests/diseases and rotate crops to different areas each year; plant resistant varieties for best results.
