Tomatoes and Peppers for the Southern Second Season

Even as autumn brings chilly air to the northern part of the U.S., those of you in the southern reaches of the country are beginning another growing season! If you're raising second-season warm-weather crops in the field, a hoop house, a low tunnel, or a high tunnel, you will likely be sowing tomatoes and peppers in your greenhouse soon.

Harris Seeds offers a nice selection of tomatoes and peppers that are bred to perform well in the South. You'll find robust disease packages, good heat tolerance, vigorous performance, and fine eating quality in these tomatoes and peppers. Whether you're raising them for wintertime field harvest in zone 10 or extended-season high-tunnel growing in zone 8 or zone 9, these varieties offer top-shelf performance and delicious taste. They just might become your "first string" for the second season!

Many of these featured varieties are offered in untreated seed for organic growers.
