1. Introduction

Tomatoes are one of the most widely grown fruits worldwide. From the small size of the cherry tomato through to the large beefsteak, from globe tomatoes through to plum tomatoes, there is a perfect tomato to grow and to taste for everyone. Tomatoes are one of the most rewarding fruits to grow. From different colored tomatoes (yellow, orange, pink), varieties bred specifically for growing in hanging baskets or vines crawling up a trellis a tomato plant looks great in your garden or balcony. When summer comes, there is nothing quite like picking a warm, sun-ripened tomato off the plant to put in your salad and to say to your friends and family I grew those!

Tomatoes are extremely good for you. Not only are they high in vitamins A and C, they also contain high amounts of the compound lycopene. Lycopene is an antioxidant – one of the strongest naturally occurring antioxidants found in nature, and in studies has been shown to protect against various forms of cancer including skin cancer.

Nothing compares taste-wise to the taste of a tomato fresh off the vine. Too often we buy our tomatoes from the store, and have become accustomed to the bland taste of the one or two tomato varieties that they sell. These tomatoes have been picked a good fortnight before optimum ripeness, then artificially ripened using ethylene gas before hitting the store. Whether you start with seeds or seedlings, the good news is that tomatoes are easy to grow. Whether you have a large garden or small balcony or patio, you will have the perfect spot to grow tomatoes.

This complete guide shows you how to grow perfectly grown tomatoes whether you are a tomato novice or seasoned tomato grower. It shows the best hints and tips for growth and highlights many of the common mistakes people make when growing tomatoes. It shows you how you can have a great tomato harvest whether you live in sprawling countryside or city apartment. This guide takes you through all the steps required, from preparing your planting spot, choosing the correct variety for your location, the correct way to plant and look after your plants (including what companion plants work great with your tomato plants), through to harvesting your plump ripe tomatoes.

Whether you want to grow tomatoes at home to save some money on your grocery bill, make some money from selling at a farmer’s market, or simply want to taste a truly great tasting tomato, right now is the perfect time to start planning growing your own!
