An experiment was conducted to study, the effect of different planting date and variety on the extension of picking period of tomato at the Horticulture Farm, BAU, Mymensingh during 2000-2001. Yield and yield contributing characters were best in October 25 planting . The highest yield of tomato (86.40 t ha-1) was obtained from October 25 planting, compared to the lowest ( 16.8 t ha-1) from February 24 planting. The variety BARI Tomato 7 produced the highest yield (57.02 t ha-1) and BARI Tomato 5 produced the lowest yield (51.38 t ha-1). All the parameters showed decreasing response with delay in planting.
