Answer: Tomatoes need 6-8 hours of sunlight to thrive. Morning sun is best, with protection from hot afternoon sun. Tomatoes are a big commercial crop in Florida, so they should grow for you. However, when temperatures are over 90 degrees, their pollen is not viable, so they can't set fruit. If there is a time of year when temperatures are less than 90, that would be the time to plant. Tomatoes are very sensitive to changes in soil moisture, so keep your plants well-watered, with soil remaining moist, but not overly wet. Good luck!
