The Q&A Archives: Cross Pollination Of Different Tomatoes

Question: If I plant cherry tomatoes next to Big Boy tomatoes will it make the size of my Big Boy tomatoes smaller? If I plant a orange colored tomatoe next to a red tomatoe will it effect either plant? Will it make a difference if they are Hybreed or Heirloom?

Answer: Different tomatoes may be grown next to each other in the garden. You do not need to worry about cross pollination unless you plan to save the seed for planting the following year.
