Tomatoes are probably the most widely grown edible horticultural crop in South Dakota. The most concentrated area of production is in the southeastern part of the state. However, market gardens throughout the state produce tomatoes for the fresh market. This is particularly true in the eastern half of South Dakota where climatic conditions are more favorable and the area is more densely populated.
