The Q&A Archives: Tomatos and excessive heat

Question: Planted Big Boy plants in a lg container and did great untill upper 90's rolled in. What should I have done for future try's

Answer: Charlene,

Larger slicer type tomatoes will fail to set fruit when the days heat up and the nights rise to above the low 70's. Here in the south we need to plant our tomatoes as early as possible in order to have a good crop. Keep the soil moist but not too wet so make sure the container drains well.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
