Q.Perennial Tomatoes

Anonymous added on May 21, 2014 | Answered

I heard that Cherry tomatoes can be grown as perennials. I have grown them in the pot for years, but is it true that they can be kept and grow new tomatoes the next year and so on? Are there certain types of Cherry tomatoes that are perennials, such as Tommy Toes?

Tomatoes are actually tender perennials, so they can live for years in the right environment. But tomato plants are susceptible to a dizzying number of diseases, so it is unusual for them to survive more than a few years even under the very best conditions.
