Tomatoes have been one of the most popular vegetables for decades. They are easily grown from small, flat seeds, which develop vines that easily tower to an average of 6 to 8 feet tall. The plants bare heavy, rounded fruits that boast a juicy, flavor filled flesh. Tomatoes come in all sorts of colors, including yellow, orange, orange-red, red, pink, brown / black, and even come in striped variances as well. Just as there are several colors of tomatoes, there are just as many shapes as well.
Tomatoes are best planted in the garden when the weather is warm at the end of the Spring season, to early Summer. The plants will thrive in the heat, producing dozens of Tomatoes until the Autumn season arrives. Below you can gain a bit more knowledge about the specific varieties that are included in this assortment.
