Growing Tomatoes

2 Materials
30 Minutes

Tomato is one of the most popular crops among home gardeners. A perennial plant originated in western South America. A not only are tomatoes delicious and versatile. Tomatoes are also relatively easy to grow and return high value for the space they occupy.

Container preparation

Where space is limited or conditions are unsuitable for tomato culture, tomatoes may be grown in containers. If plants are grown in containers, use a container at least 18 inches by 16 inches and 12 inches deep. However, any large container is good as long as it provides adequate drainage for plants.

Land preparation

When choosing a nursery site, you should consider the following points.

  • Choose a site far away from any tomato-related crops to reduce disease and pest transfer risk.
  •  Select a site that had not been grown tomato or any tomato related crop for the past three seasons in order to avoid disease and pest attack.


A land should be prepared for transplanting as soon as the seed is sown in the seedbed to decompose organic matter. First, plow the land and dig with a hoe up to 20 cm deep. 


Harvest tomato fruits when they are mature. When tomato fruits have changed their color from green to red streaks, they have lost their shine, and all grooves are filled.
