    The USDA zone in Flippin, Arkansas is 6b, which means your tomatoes won't survive the winter at all. Technically tomatoes are perennials and can stay green and produce fruit all year long... in zones 11 and above. This means that most gardeners just have to treat them as annuals and accept that they'll die at the end of the growing season.
