How Long Do Tomato Plants Live in Tropical Climates?
If there's no frost to kill them, wouldn't they live for years and grow into a tree?

Re: How Long Do Tomato Plants Live in Tropical Climates?
i knew they can fruit for quite some time given the conditions are met,

but that what you said very well maybe true

ive heard they made an experiment with cherrytomatos and got 1000s of big ones with a little change to light spectrum,so i think you could be on the right trail,

do more research on it,sounds plausible,

and also other perennials like squash,zuchinni,strawberry(strawberry tree,now that would be truly epic...)

In a truly tropical climate, with little difference in the Summer/Winter light, they can live 20 years and up. They grow into a sizable bush.... I dunno about tree, but the main stem grows to be several inches thick.

they are a huge ever growing vine, & can climb a tree.

They are not a tree.

I had tomatoes until about 3 weeks ago. Then a 28 degree night came along and took em out. It was 78 yesterday. In the mid 40's at night currently.

I started some Early Girl tomatoes in pots in January. By the end of March they were 3-4 feet tall & I put them outdoors on a trellis with drip irrigation. By the following October, they were about 14 ft tall and had produced huge numbers of tomatoes in big clusters. Unfortunately, in Early November, Jack Frost slaughtered them.

I can imagine a 2 or 3 pound strawberry. I could really sink my teeth into that!

I just hope the New Agers aren't a bunch of bleeding heart liberals who would rather talk to plants than eat them.
