cherry tomatoes

Is it too late to start planting cherry tomatoes? (I live in NY). Any advice or suggestions? It's my first time doing this. 


Re: cherry tomatoes

  • If you start with a plant -- not seeds -- you will probably be okay.  You just may not get any fruit until mid-August or even later.
  • In the PNW you sometimes don't put out tomato starts until mid-June.

    I'd get a couple of plants. Get one that's determinate (bush type), it'll ripen faster, but will give you all of your fruits at once. Get a vining type (indeterminate) as well, and it'll give you fruits through the rest of the season. Indeterminates tend to be the better-tasting, heirloom varieties, but they can take awhile getting started. This way you can have some both sooner and later.

    Sometimes I wonder if scientists have never seen a sci-fi movie before. "Oh yes, let's create a super species of deer. NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG." I wonder if State Farm offers a Zombie Deer Attack policy. -CaliopeSpidrman
  • I'm in Maine and everyone here says to plant them on Memorial Day weekend. I did mine two weeks ago. And yes, indeterminate take awhile but you can find pretty decently-grown plants already. I saw some huge ones at Lowe's.
