The present study was carried out to examine the effect of different planting dates on growth, flowering and fruit yield of tomatoduring November 2013 to April 2014. Threetransplanting were done at an interval of 10 days. The different transplanting dates were; December 10, December20 and December 30. The experimental results showed that different planting dates showed significant influence on growth and reproductive characters of tomatoincluding fruit yield. The first transplanting date, December 10 resulted in improvement of all the attributes including increased plant height (63.54 cm), leaf number (33.3), flower number (71.15 days), fruit number (41.98 days), number of flowers plant-1 (150), number of fruit plant-1(86.08) and yield per hectare (85 t) compared to 2ndtransplanting date, December 20 and 3rd transplanting date, December 30.Therfore, it is suggesting that earlier transplating produced higher friut yield of tomato.
