Today we have been picking our tomatoes before the plants die. The tomato plants only last for the summer because they are an annual plant which means that it completes its life cycle, from germination to the production of seeds, within one year and then dies. Summer annuals, like tomatoes, germinate during spring or early summer and mature by autumn of the same year. The opposite of an annual plant is a perennial.
