Indeterminate tomatoes grow and bear all season until frost, on an ongoing basis. Determinate tomatoes bear their fruit over a concentrated period of time and then stop growing and stop bearing. If you are canning, for instance, you might prefer to grow a determinate type. If your primary interest is in fresh eating over a long season you might prefer an indeterminate type of tomato.
