A quick explanation of tomato terms:
Seeds from open-pollinated varieties produce plants and fruit that are similar to their parent. Heirloom tomatoes are open-pollinated varieties that have been passed down, through several generations for their valued characteristics. A hybrid tomato results from the mating of two different varieties of the same plant species.
Determinate tomatoes have a limited harvest period because when flower buds set fruit plant growth stops. These plants needs little or no staking. The majority of determinate tomatoes are harvested within a period of a month or two. Generally good for container growing.
Indeterminate plants will keep growing and producing new blossoms even after fruit set. These “vining” varieties require staking and harvest may last for several months.
Semi-Determinate plants are larger than determinate but smaller than indeterminate and usually produce a second crop.
