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!
