The Q&A Archives: Tomato Varieties for Provo

Question: What is the best veriety of tomatos for Provo, Utah? Is there a yellow tomato?

Answer: Since your growing season is relatively short, choose a tomato that will mature quickly. Small and medium-sized tomatoes will usually mature faster and not have trouble with cracking skins in intense UV areas. Burpee's offers Early Pick (62 days) and Early Girl (60 days) both medium-sized and red. Yes, there are yellow tomatoes! I like yellow pear, which makes zillions of bite-size, juicy fruits. (75 days) A medium yellow tomato is Sweet Tangerine (68) days. Burpee can be reached at 1-800-888-1447 or at Good luck with your tomatoes!
