Why are tomatoes so sensitive to cold weather?



  1. 0 Votes

    Tomatos, like many vegetable plants. are sensitive to cold weather because they may freeze. Many of the plants are not native to where people are growing them or they have been genetically engineered to be bigger or juicer and now are not well adapted to cold temperatures. If the plant freezes it may lose some of the branches or the blossoms or may even die. This sets back the plant and may result in little or no fruit for the season. It is recommended that you cover your tomato plants if it may freeze that night. You should be sure to wait to plant them until frosts are unlikely and ground temperatures have warmed.
