High Temperatures Halt Tomato Production

 

 

Tomato plants need average summer temperatures to produce fruit. With high temperatures yield will be slowed until normal temperatures return.

With daytime temperatures over 92 and nighttime lows of 70 or above, tomatoes won't produce as well.

During this time, mulch plants well, water deeply, watch for pests and take care of the plants. Cooler temperatures will once again return and the well-tended, healthy plants will produce delicious tomatoes.
