A tomato is technically a fruit, but is generally eaten and prepared like a vegetable. Usually red when mature, tomatoes can come in a variety of colours including yellow, orange, green, and purple.


The growing season in B.C. is short, with cool rainy days and frosty evenings beginning in the early fall. Some farmers use large, heated greenhouses to extend the season and produce ripe, fresh produce all year.

Did you know?

  • B.C. produces about 60 million kilograms of greenhouse tomatoes each year.
  • Tomato flowers are self-fertile. That means that they do not require insects or other means to move pollen from one flower to another to be fertilized.
