Q.Tomatoes In Florida
the large corporate tomato farms in south Florida have two growing seasons for tomatoes ………..and they take a two month break in the summer because of the heat. my question: while planting in the spring season yields a crop before the summer heat ……..am i able to maintain (keep) the same ‘mature’ indeterminate plants for another crop in the fall when the temperatures are right. (understanding, of course, that there’ll be no setting of fruit in the extreme temperatures of the summer.)

Sure! Depending on the care that they receive, and if you are able to shade them, temporarily, during the heat, they can produce a continuous crop.
Usually, though, once the heat gets to them it is better to start new and more productive plants.
