Question: What types of tomatoes are best for Texas gardens?
Answer: There are many good varieties, but availability will vary. The main thing to remember is to plant several different varieties and to concentrate on small and medium-sized varieties. Large-fruiting tomatoes do not set fruit well in cool weather (lower than 70 degrees), nor will they set reliably when temperatures climb above 90 degrees on a regular basis. Smaller types will produce far more total weight of fruit.
