Grow the Best Tomatoes

The tomato is a fruit that we use as a vegetable, one of the few vegetables native to the Americas. It was first known as a food in Peru and until a couple of centuries ago, only grown as an ornamental and dubbed the “love apple”.

It is now the most popular vegetable in our gardens, and why shouldn’t it be? It can be used in so many ways, from eating single ripe fruit in the garden, to frying them green, from making preserves from green and ripe ones, to paste, juice, stew, soups, salads - the uses are almost endless.

In this thorough guide to every aspect of tomato growing, readers will find step-by-step, illustrated instructions and scores of professional secrets for growing better tomatoes plus tips for extending the growing season, supporting plants and controlling pests.
