How to temperate-climate tomatoes respond to tropical weather?

I brought along a few packs of tomato seeds as I moved to my new home in the Philippines. Lovely here, hot as hell. Anybody ever tried planting seeds from “up north” in a tropical country? For tomatoes I’m curious as to what to expect.

They suffer a lot from the heat so make sure to mulch abundantly and if you can, control heat exposure by covering them with a thin cloth or something. Don’t expect big tomatoes at harvest time. 😀 Seems the struggle with heat adjustment restricts the plants from being focus on growing big fruits.October 14, 2021 at 7:50 am ReplyFatzoPrivate messageGreen Thumb
Umpf I hope these won’t grow much smaller than they should naturally be… They’re cherry tomatoes! If they grow any smaller than an inch I’ll have to call them marble tomatoes instead 😛 😛 😛
Here is the first batch starting off, one variety already sprouted 😀
Loving the season!
