Nobody, and I mean nobody, loves a big ripe jucy red tomato more than this writer. I come from California and the area of the Sacramento Valley where summer temperatures reach 115 and above, yet, each year I grew some of the most succulent tomatoes ever seen. Heat can destroy your plant but if you use good growing practices, a good hybrid variety, mulch heavily to keep the soil cooler, water sufficiently but not too heavily, perhaps even do a little hand pollinating with a Q-Tip, you should succeed. I'll be growing my own in the ground, in pots and elevated beds in the partial shade of my place in Armenia Village once I become established sometime in Late July and early August. Will keep you advised of my success and/or failure. I'll be bringing down a ton of seed from the US when I arrive in July.
