How late in the season will tomatoes grow outside?
Our tomato plants are still producing tomatoes in October. When will they stop?
My tomato plants are also still producing. I just picked a bunch about an hour ago and there are still several green ones and some that aren't quite red yet. I think it depends on the temperature where you live as to when they die back.
Hi, mine look identical to yours Paul- tomatoes will grow in to the autumn, unless there's a frost. Plants when they start dying back will try and put all their energy into reproducing, particularly if you are still feeding them. Whether the tomatoes will ripen and go red is debatable, mine are still green, but we live in hope. If you have a green house you might be lucky and get them to ripen in there. But with the shorter days upon us you look like frying your tomatoes in a green sauce lol
Tomatoes will continue to grow and make fruit until a heavy frost. You can extend the time by throwing a sheet of clear plastic over them, it keeps them warm at night, and makes it warmer during the day too, so they keep on growing and ripening. You can actually bring many veggies indoors and keep them by a sunny window. For tomatoes it has to be really sunny, but other veggies don't need as much.
Dude, the best season to grow any kind of vegatables is right after winter and ends at winter! those are the best months to grow OUTSIDE. If you want in winter, then you would have to grow in doors.

I live in South Florida and I am having the hardest time getting my vegetable garden to grow. We've already had to completely had to redo it twice, first due to weeds, second due to an unseasonably cold winter. Now we've got everything in a large box to keep the weeds out and summer's...
