QUESTION: How many tomatoes do you get from one plant?
ANSWER: With determinate tomato plants that blossom and set fruit all at one time, you can count the blossoms to find out how many tomatoes that plant will produce (assuming that all the blossoms are pollinated). Different varieties of tomatoes produce different average harvests.
For example, a Roma tomato plant may produce up to 200 tomatoes in a growing season, and tomato plants growing in a square foot garden usually produce about 20 pounds of tomatoes in a season. As a general rule, if you’re growing cherry or slicing tomatoes, plant one to four plants per person who will eat the tomatoes. For cooking tomato varieties, plant three to six tomato plants per person who will eat the tomatoes.
