My Son planted Cherry tomatoes it is very interesting that those plants produce more pounds of tomatoes than my plants that make larger tomatoes per plant. He picked 10 lbs of tomatoes from 4 plants that is a lot of tiny tomatoes and that takes a lot of time to pick. LOL. His plants are in my garden and hot weather does not seem to effect them as much as hot weather effects plants that produce larger tomatoes. If a person was only interested in getting the largest volume harvest possible all summer for what ever reason cherry tomatoes seems to be the way to go. Most of my tomatoes go into mason jars for winter to make, soup, chili, stew, etc. cherry tomatoes can be Canned in jars too. Cherry tomatoes have a very good flavor so why not use them in soup, stew, chili, etc. Someone mentioned once cherry tomatoes do better in hot weather than other tomatoes now I think that is true. We eat as many tomatoes every day as we possible can. I picked 14 lbs of tomatoes today from 25 plants that is about 9 ounces of tomatoes per plant compared to 40 ounces per plant for cherry tomatoes. Last summer my son planted cherry tomatoes it seemed like his plants were making more tomatoes than mine but I was not weighing his tomatoes and comparing them to mine.
