There are so many varieties of tomatoes! Which ones would we have the most likely success with here in North Palm Beach in the summertime?

In the deep south tomatoes are a spring and a fall veggie. A few brave varieties will struggle through the infernal heat of summer, but production almost shuts down completely.

As a group, cherry fruited types do better in the heat. For a larger fruited type, try Burpee's 'Heatwave II'.

Thanks for the question!
