Answer: In Southern California it's possible for tomato plants to grow for two years because they're tropical perennials. I think the no-care claim might be more wishful thinking than fact. Plants need water and food to live and produce.<br><br>Strawberry plants live for about 3 years before production diminishes, so they're considered perennials, too. But they will still need to be groomed and fed and watered.<br><br>Strawberries are either June-bearing or Ever-bearing. The June bearing plants produce all of their fruit at one time. The Ever-bearing varieties produce berries all summer long.<br><br>The bottom line is that both tomatoes and strawberries might live and grow all year, but they won't produce fruit until the fruiting cycles are triggered by summer weather.<br>Hope this information helps.
