I grew 6 Heatwave tomato plants last year in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California. We have mild winters and hot, dry summers. All of my tomatoes were planted against a south-facing wall. They bore prolifically and consistantly all through the summer without a break and still had ripe fruit through January this year. Even here, tomatoes don't normally overwinter, so this was a surprise. They are still alive (4/1) and have a crop that will be ready soon. The only downside is that their flavor is just not all that interesting. The tomatoes are about medium-sized.
This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
Tempe, Arizona Corona, California Merritt Island, Florida Rockledge, Florida Nebo, Kentucky Bastrop, Louisiana Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico Oklahoma City, Oklahoma South Jordan, Utah Christiansted, Virgin Islands
