The Q&A Archives: Tomato Seeds In The Tropic

Question: I need to know about your tomato's experience in the tropic, I'm actually growing Long-keeper and it's doing well during the first 8 wks. I would like to grow big size tomatoes. What might be a good choice?

Answer: Heatwave is definitely a good one to try. Also, Hawaiian VFNT Hybrid is heat-tolerant and delicious; Gulf State Market is an old variety popular in the Gulf states; Arkansas Traveler is a southern heirloom; Tropic VFT was developed for Florida's climate; and Cherokee Purple is an heirloom from Tennessee. Heatwave is available from Burpee, and all of these varieties are available from Tomato Growers Supply, P.O. Box 2237, Fort Myers, FL 33902, (941) 768-1119.
