Fall tomatoes

I have never planted Fall tomatoes.
When do I plant and what variety do you suggest? My Spring tomatoes are always successful.

Blue.dog,

I've never had a lot of success with fall tomatoes...seems like something always gets them. Along the coast, you might have better chances than inland.

The same varieties you have had success with should be fine. Lay down some "branches", cover with dirt, and soon they will take root and can be transplanted for fall.

Carmelo is a good fall tomato. Might have to get seed though as the sets are hard to find.


I grew these all fall and into the winter when I lived inside the loop in Houston. It never froze with all the extra city heat and it was hot enough to set fruit even into the late fall. Indeterminate type medium sized fruit with good flavor.

Hard to say exactly. I’d get some seed going soon if you go the seed route or wait until they have sets of whatever in late August, early September. I’ve got 4 tiny, tiny sets, sprouts really, of Carmelo now and am going to put them in bigger pots later. I’m probably too early on these. If I can nurse them along in the bigger pots and they look decent, I’ll put them in the ground around the last part of August to September 1st. And they will likely be pretty big and just getting to the first blooms providing the heat doesn’t crush them first. I’m going to give them lots of shade until they get in the garden and even that gets afternoon shade.

I’m going to plant some more Carmelo, the rest of my tiny supply, seed in a couple or three of weeks into 4” pots and then transfer the sets in bigger pots and then onto to the garden in mid September.

Lake Jackson, I haven’t done fall tomatoes here yet only in Houston, generally works out to be a little colder than the inner part of Houston where I used to live. All the buildings and concrete in Houston add a lot of nighttime heat to cooler mid and late fall nights which works out good into the later part of fall and early winter as far as tomatoes are concerned.
