Tomato Floradade- Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) can be grown anytime of the year. In hilly areas, plant tomato from September to January. For lowlands, plant from November to February. Tomato is very sensitive to flooding; hence, irrigation must be done just to moisten the root zone especially during the onset of flowering up to the last harvest. Plants thrive well with temperature ranges from 21 – 24oC. Plants mature at 75 – 90 days after sowing.
