Growing Tomatoes, Peppers, and Eggplants in Wisconsin: A Guide for Fresh-market Growers was produced by the University of Wisconsin Extension and written by A.C. Newenhouse, current Senior Scientist in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and Karen Delahaut, who was a horticulture outreach specialist for the Integrated Pest Management program. This publication discusses production of tomatoes, peppers and eggplants from the plant family Solanaceae. Written for fresh-market growers in Wisconsin, and other similar climates, this publication specifically looks at plant descriptions, site and cultivar selection, planting, transplanting and culture, soils, nutrient and pest management, irrigation, postharvest management, and environmental disorders. Helpful tables and figures including recommended cultivars for Wisconsin, descriptions of various pepper types, approximate dates for first and last killing frosts in Wisconsin, Annual nitrogen, phosphate (P2O5), and potash (K2O) recommendations, and USDA tomato maturity classes are provided throughout the publication. Further resources can be found at the end.
