The determinate tomato (or bush tomato)

Determinate tomatoes stop growing themselves. Unlike indeterminate tomatoes which produce tomatoes throughout the season,

determinate types produce tomatoes in a short period, all at once. Determinate tomato plants don’t need to be pruned, remain relatively

 small and have a shrub-like appearance. Many determinate tomatoes are perfect for growing in pots on a patio or balcony.

The determinate tomato is often smaller than the indeterminate tomato.

Hybrid or Heirloom tomato

By crossing tomato plants, plants can be obtained that combine the best features of both. Most tomatoes in the supermarkets are

hybrid tomatoes, tomatoes that are limited in the number of shapes, colors and flavors. They are often less sensitive to diseases.

Nowadays it is getting more popular to grow your own tomatoes. With this popularity comes more interest in old tomato varieties that

often taste deliciously. Some heirloom varieties are more than one hundred years old. These heirloom tomatoes have a great variety

in form, color, taste and size. But they can be a bit more susceptible to disease.

Tomatoes can be divided in different ways of the Harvest time.

Early

Early tomatoes mature within 65 days after repotting.

Mid-season

Midseason tomatoes take between 65 and 80 days after repotting to mature and be ready for harvest.

Late

Late tomatoes take between 80 and 100 days after repotting before they are mature.
