The Q&A Archives: Indeterminate or Determinate

Question: I am new to gardening and while reading through your catalog came across the terms determinate and indeterminate. What do these mean?

Answer: The terms describe the growth habit of the plant. Determinate type tomato plants and will stop growing when they reach maturity. They'll flower and produce fruit in one crop. Indeterminate types of tomatoes continue to develop foliage and blossoms all summer long. Hope this information helps.
