Posted Mar 26 2010 10:00am

Late season tomatoes varieties reach ripeness or maturity 80 days or more after the seedling has been transplanted to the garden.


Late season tomatoes generally bear the largest fruits and are commonly the tastiest tomatoes because they have been on the vine the longest and have ripened in the heat of summer.


For the longest tomato harvest set out late-season tomatoes at the same time you set out early-season tomatoes and mid-season tomatoes, that way you will have a succession of tomato harvests.


Here is a checklist of popular late season tomato varieties: included in each entry is the type of tomato, the color, size, and flavor; also listed are the average days to maturity, whether the tomato is determinate or indeterminate and whether it is disease resistant.
