What is the Best Time to Plant a Tomato Tree?

Tomatoes are generally grown from seedlings started indoors that are later transplanted into the garden. Tomato seedlings are usually transplanted into the garden 1 to 3 weeks after the last drop. If an unexpected frost threatens, transplants must be covered and protected.

Time Your Planting

Planting of tomatoes in spring or early summer is the best timing depending on the temperatures and climate in your geographic region. Plant once the soil has heated when daytime temperatures reach above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime temperatures stay above 50 F. Temperatures below 50 F will result in stunted plants and decreased or no fruit. Early-season tomatoes require 50 to 60 days to reach harvest from transplanting; mid-season tomatoes need 60 to 80 days; late-season tomatoes require 80 or more days.
