Tomato plants vary in height, depending on the variety grown. Determinate tomatoes grow and produce fruit once during the season, typically reaching 3 to 4 feet in height. Indeterminate tomato varieties grow on vines and produce fruit several times during the season. Indeterminate vines average 6 to 12 feet in height.
