Extended Growing Season
By monitoring and controlling the environment, varieties can be picked at the peak of ripeness to ensure optimum taste and freshness. Depending upon on the variety, some tomatoes can be harvested up to four times per year over 39 weeks, far exceeding production of field-grown produce.
Greenhouses also protect plants from adverse weather conditions such as significant swings in temperature, wind and rain storms, and even related impacts from natural disasters such as regional wildfires. Reducing stress on plants can increase crop yields and enhances overall varietal quality and flavor of produce.
