Determinate vs Indeterminate Tomatoes
Happy New Years everyone in the start of the gardening season I want to learn about Determinate and Indeterminate Tomatoes. There is nothing in this world like a home grown tomato and when i learned there is a difference yall know I had to investigate lol. One of the most common questions about tomato plants is what the difference is between determinate and indeterminate varieties. Once you know the difference, it's easy to make informed decisions about which tomatoes will work best in your garden. The most simple explanation of the difference between determinate and indeterminate tomatoes is that determinate tomatoes bear their crop all at once, while indeterminate tomatoes bear fruit over the course of a season. Indeterminate varieties tend to grow longer vines and will require more support in terms of staking or caging over the course of a season. Determinate varieties often (but not always) tend to be more compact and manageable.
