Tomato Review - The Different Types of Tomatoes

Beefsteak Tomatoes

Known for their large size and meaty texture, beefsteak tomatoes are commonly used for sandwiches and slicing. They come in various colors, including red, pink, yellow, and even striped varieties.

Heirloom Tomatoes

Heirloom tomatoes are open-pollinated varieties that have been passed down through generations. They come in various colors, shapes, and sizes and are known for their unique flavors and vibrant appearances.

Roma Tomatoes

They are popular for making sauces, pastes, and canning due to their low moisture content.

Cherry Tomatoes

Small and round, cherry tomatoes are bite-sized and often used in salads or as a snack. They are available in different colors like red, yellow, and even black.

Growth Habits - Tomato Tasting Review 2023

Determinate Tomatoes

Determinate tomatoes are often referred to as bush tomatoes. They have a compact growth habit and tend to reach a predetermined height, usually around 2 to 4 feet (60 to 120 centimeters). These tomatoes typically stop growing when fruit sets on the terminal bud, and they tend to produce a large crop of fruit over a relatively short period. Determinate tomatoes are suitable for container gardening or small garden spaces.

Indeterminate Tomatoes

Indeterminate tomatoes have a vining or sprawling growth habit. They continue to grow and produce fruit throughout the growing season until frost or other unfavorable conditions. Indeterminate tomatoes can grow quite tall, often reaching 6 to 12 feet (180 to 360 centimeters) or even more under ideal conditions. They require support, such as stakes, cages, or trellises, to keep the plants upright and ensure proper air circulation.

Semi-determinate Tomatoes

Semi-determinate tomatoes exhibit characteristics of both determinate and indeterminate types. They are more compact than indeterminate varieties, but they continue to grow and produce fruit for a longer period compared to determinate tomatoes. Semi-determinate tomatoes often benefit from some support but may not require as much as indeterminate varieties.

It's important to note that these growth habits are general guidelines, and there can be variations within each tomato variety. Additionally, some heirloom varieties may have unique growth patterns that differ from the typical determinate or indeterminate habits. When selecting tomato varieties, it's always a good idea to refer to specific plant information online and recommended growing conditions.
