Tomato Plant Problems - Knowledgebase Question

Lucedale, Mi
Question by dfrizzell

I live in Lucedale, MS 39452. I was told the temperature here will prohibit tomato production. Is there a tomato(s) that will grow well here and would shade cloth help? We just moved to this area and we don't know what will grow and not grow here compared to where we lived in San Diego previously.

Thank you for any help.

It can sometimes be frustrating when trying to learn about gardening in a new area. You can grow tomatoes and the University of Mississippi has a publication with all the details, along with a list of the best varieties. I hope you find it helpful! Here's the website:
