Do you have a breed of tomato that will flourish in elevated temperatures, eg daytime 95 F, nightime 85 F.? I have been living in the Philippines for the past year and although I can grow tomato plants without too many
problems I can't get them to bear fruit. They flower but fail to pollinate.

Pollen from most varieties of tomatoes becomes sterile during very hot weather. Exceptions are 'Heatmaster' and 'Sunray', both available from Adriance Farm & Flower, 40 North Main St., Cohocton, NY 14826. Drop them a line and request a catalog. You may find other heat-loving veggies in their catalog!
