Okay, I understand that tomatoes (for example) need to be started indoors six weeks before transplant. I get that I should be looking for the first bloom after 75 days (for example, my Principe Borghese plants). But is there anywhere that lists for how long a plant will remain in production?

When it gets above a certain temperature, I know my pea plants will start turning brown and start the winding down cycle. Do determinate (tomatoes that set fruit all at once) have multiple fruitings or only one? Is there anywhere that lists this kind of information? Going crazy here trying to plan!

Lenght of production time will vary due to weather, sun, wind, drought. Another thing that will affect production is not picking the fruit.

Length of production information Empty Picking tomatoes indefinitely

Post  tomperrin 3/22/2012, 8:35 pm

Last year I was picking tomatoes in October in zone 7a. This year I am going to try and bring one or two of the indeterminate varieties indoors and see if it produces during the winter under my one skylight.
This year my first tomato from seed germinated a couple of days ago.

An indeterminate tomato will produce until weather kills it. Determinate varieties are different. I've got three of those to plant, but I have to find a place for them as they take up more room.

I know determinate yield all at once, but do they only yield one time?

Here is your answer: This website is where I got the info:

http://www.ediblecontainergardening.com/determinate-vs-indeterminate-tomatoes/

Determinate Tomatoes


Determinate tomato plants are genetically engineered plants that will grow to have a pre-determined height, predetermined number of stems, and a predetermined number of leaves. They only bear fruit for a short time during the growing season. Once the tomatoes are harvested, the plant will not bear any more fruit, and it will eventually die down.

Is this correct? My local Ace has several transplants for sale that they have listed as determinate and heirloom... Length of production information 601593

Determinate are not genetically engineered in the context we now use that term. They are hybrids that were developed by "breeding", usually to enable their use in challenging areas (think short growing season, drought tolerant, etc). Heirloom seed could also be hybrid, although that hybridization happened many years ago, and the seed has been "handed down" as a true-breeding variety. In truth, nearly every garden vegetable has been hybridized at some point in its history. Not many of our modern day (1800's to present) are the same as their wild counterparts.
