I was wondering if anyone has any experience in growing the Manitoba variety of tomato. I bought some seeds off of ebay because I am interested in extending the growing season on both ends and this seemed like a good variety to try it on. How resistant are they to the cold? With a greenhouse, how long do you think I can keep these outdoors? I live in KY, zone 6....

I am trying Manitoba for the first time this year.

The main reason I chose them is their days to maturity, listed as 66 days. Territorial Seed Co lists this as a short season tomato developed in Manitoba Canada. Because this is a determinate tomato, I don't think you are going to be able to extend your season much as they typically develop and ripen their fruit all at once, as opposed in indeterminates that will continue to bear until frost.

At least from what I've read, determinate tomatoes are often used to extend the season in warmer climates, actually. The idea is to start them in the middle of the summer for early fall planting. I've seen "early" determinate varieties recommended as winter tomatoes in areas like mine.

You can always plant at different times.

Sorry for the misinformation guys, what you said makes sense. I guess I got carried away because I am so looking for early tomatoes.

Manitoba Tomatos Empty Thanks!

Thanks for the good info, I didn't realize they were determinate so that will play into my cycle of planting.... I want to try and reach the middle or end of november with my tomatoes in my greenhouse if possible; I live in zone 6a in walton, ky and want to have as little dead time as possible for veggies. I will try my hand at bok choi this winter and carrots as well - has anyone had any luck growing all year long? If so, what does the best in the dead of winter? Also, can you bring tomatoes in during the winter since they are perfect pollinators like the peppers? Can I grow peppers inside during the winter? Any luck with that anyone?
