A North Texas Tomato Guide

Know your Green Zebras from your Sun Golds.

Fall is the best time to grow tomatoes in North Texas, says Kim Martin of Barking Cat Farm. Set plants in mid-July and provide shade and extra water to get them through the hot summer. Small varieties—cocktail, grape, cherry—will grow successfully through the summer. Most full-size tomatoes, such as slicer and beefsteaks, will not produce fruit when nighttime temps are above 75 degrees.

Martin weighs in on the best local varieties.
