How to Grow Tomatoes


More Americans grow tomatoes than any other vegetable. No wonder - there's no resemblance between the tasteless pink slices served in restaurants and the real deal, fresh from the vine and bursting with flavor. Tomatoes crave heat, but they'll grow anywhere in USDA zone 3 and warmer.



Step One

Buy tomato plants at the nursery for planting after all danger of frost has passed. Otherwise, start seeds indoors six to eight weeks before the last expected frost.
