The Q&A Archives: cherry tomatoe plant spacing

Question: can i plant cherry tomatoe plants with beefsteak plants and how far apart?

Answer: You can plant your cherry tomato plants near your beefsteak tomatoes without changing the fruit of either, but don't try to save the seeds for planting next year or you may end up with some strange sized fruit due to cross pollination. Your beefsteak tomato plant will grow quite large so plant your cherry tomato at least 3 feet away so that each plant will have plenty of elbow room to grow. Best wishes with your tomatoes!
