The Q&A Archives: Longivity Of Tomato Plant

Question: A tomato plant I planted last May is still alive, and still producing tomatoes! We did not have a frost here this winter at all. I was wondering how long this plant could live, and if I should let it just keep going on?

Answer: Tomato plants are perennial plants in warm winter areas. Some will grow for 3 or 4 years before finally giving up. Encourage your plant to continue producing fruit by regularly harvesting tomatoes. Keep up the excellent care of your tomato plant and it will reward you with lots more tasty fruit!
