The Q&A Archives: Hot Weather Tomato Varieties

Question: What are the best tomato varieties to grow in the hot Houston weather? I prefer medium and large size tomatoes.

Answer: Burpee carries one called Heatwave II that grows great tasting tomatoes even in 100 degree weather. For even larger tomatoes, try Brandywine, an heirloom variety, that ripens in 85 days.<br><br>If you don't have the new 1998 Burpee Catalog, you can order by phone at (800) 888-1447.<br>
