Tomatoes for Mini Hoop Houses


“Do they make or do you carry low growing tomatoes.I live outside of Las Vegas and use pvc hoops covered with shade cloth. ~D.”

Based on how you are going to be covering them, I think your best bet may be to go with a tomato that is typically grown in a container, like a Patio (medium sized fruit) or Micro Tom (cherry).  These both have a low growth habit and would fit well under the shade cloth.  If you are able to have a bit taller variety, then I would recommend going with a bush type, like Husky Red, Husky Cherry, Bush Champion, or Bush Goliath.
