In the U.S., tomatoes are in season throughout the Summer, from June until September. California and Florida are the two states that have the largest tomato crop yields.
Tomatoes grow best in hot, humid environments, which is why Florida is an ideal state for the crop. While most people think of tomatoes as a solely red fruit that is often used as a vegetable, tomatoes grow in a number of colors. Green and yellow tomatoes, as well as tomatoes in a variety of red shades, are abundant during the summer season. These tomatoes vary in flavor as well, from sweet and succulent to tart and acidic.
