Heat

by Michael
(Jay, Florida )

I live in NW Florida. The temperatures start to get warm here in March and by June, it is in the 90’s with 100% humidity. By September it’s OMG hot. The only real successful crop I have is peppers. They love the heat.


But I want to grow tomatoes. So a variety and some tips to keep them going would be great. I usually pull old plants in the late summer and have more seeds going in the greenhouse. I get another small crop till first frost, sometimes as late as December. I'd like to grow a variety that produces sauce, cherry and/or canning tomatoes.

Michael,

You're in luck - if you choose appropriate tomato varieties - because tomatoes love the heat.

Here's a list of heat-tolerant tomato varieties and tomatoes that do well in heat and humidity.

As always, check with your local garden nurseries for the tomato varieties that they recommend.

Good luck and happy gardening!
