Can you grow tomatoes in the winter (Zone 10a)? Are there certain varieties better suited for winter months here?

I believe I used to live in zone 10a when I lived in Los Angeles (Van Nuys). I *did* manage to grow some tomatoes over winter a couple of times, though I'm not sure it was worth it.

It wasn't worth it because you planted out of season. By the planting guide - plant late winter early spring for a summer crop.

There was more to my reply, recommending varieties (esp Glacier) and alternative approaches, but I'm not sure what happened to it. Maybe I wrote too much info. (Gardenate : Part of the last sentence was missing in your previous reply)
