Solanum Lycopersicum

Tomatoes are part of the Solanaceae or Nightshade family, along with aubergines, potatoes, peppers, and many others.

There are five main types of tomatoes: Globe, Beefsteak, Cherry, Plum, and Oxheart.

The fruit can come in a variety of colours, like red, shades of yellow, orange, pink, green, burgundy, purple, streaked and striped, and practically black.

All tomatoes are either determinate, indeterminate, or semi-determinate.

Determinate: (“bush tomatoes”)

  • Plants grow 1-3 feet tall. Ideal for patios, containers, and small space gardens. Produce one big crop and die off near the end of the growing season

Indeterminate: (“vining tomatoes”)

  • Plants grow up to 10 feet tall and need sturdy support. More suited to raised beds and larger vegetable plots. Continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season


  • More compact than indeterminate plants. Produce fruit throughout the growing season

Cool facts about tomatoes

Cooking with tomatoes

  • Globe or Salad tomato: Rounded fruits, 2-3 inches in diameter, are perfect for slicing on sandwiches or chopped in salads. Somewhat tart and juicy, these have a good balance of acid and sweet
  • Beefsteak tomato: Among the largest fruits, beefsteaks have a juicy, meaty texture and classic flavor. Round, slightly flattened fruits are superior slicers for sandwiches, salads, and caprese
  • Cherry tomato: Bite-sized rounded fruits that grow in clusters are juicy and sweet tasting. Good for snacking, salads, kebabs, roasting, and quick sauces
  • Plum tomato: The water content is low and texture is firm, making these a good choice for tomato sauce, paste, roasting, drying, and canning. Fruits are mellow tasting, medium sized, and oval shaped
  • Oxheart tomato: They are very meaty with few seeds, making them a great slicing tomato. Their size also makes them a good tomato for stuffing, and since there are few seeds, their meat works well in sauces and salsas

Sow and Grow Start seeds indoors in February for greenhouse crops and 4-6 weeks before the last frost for outdoor crops. Moisten good quality compost and add into seed trays or small pots. Sow the seeds 2″ apart, cover them with a thin layer of soil and water lightly. A temperature of 18-23°C is ideal for germination which should take 7-14 days. When seedlings are about 6″ tall repot them into bigger pots. After all chances of frost have passed they are ready to be transplanted in their final position.
Care and Harvest Because cordon tomatoes grow so tall, they need support by way of bamboo canes or wooden stakes. As the plant grows remove all new side shoots and thin out foliage as soon as the flowers appear and carry on as the plant fruits. Pinch out the growing tips at the top of the plant when the plant has 4-5 trusses. Harvest when fully ripened on the vine for best flavour.
Height and Spread The plant grows to a height of 6′ and spreads to 20″.
