I have a garden in Bethlehem, NH. What is the shortest-season tomato plant I could put in? The growing season is very short.

I would suggest starting your seeds in pots so you can set out plants that are already up and ready to go. Or you can buy tomato plants. Even with these, you should try to get tomatoes with the fewest days until harvest. Dates until harvest range froma short 49 days right up to 85 days.

Burpee has a "Bush Early Girl" which is ready in 56 days. There is also the new "Fourth of July" which ripens in just 44 days! They would seem good choices.
