The Q&A Archives: Tomates For Zone 17

Question: What type of tomatoes are suitable for Zone 17 - Marin coastal area near San Francisco Bay. Summers days can be foggy for several days at a time.

thank you

Answer: You might want to try a tomato that matures quickly and is a smaller size, since you have a fairly short and cool growing season. I like Early Girl because it matures within 59 days. I also like Yellow Pear even though it takes 75 days because it puts on jillions of fruit and they don't have to be on the vine long. I hope this info helps.
