This study was carried out to examine the effect of different planting dates on growth, flowering and fruit yield of tomato during November 2013 to April 2014. Three transplanting were done at an interval of 10 days. The different transplanting dates were; December 10, December 20 and December 30. The experimental results showed that different planting dates showed significant influence on growth and reproductive characters of tomato including fruit yield. The first transplanting date, December 10 resulted in improvement of all the attributes including increased plant height (70.22 cm at 60 DAT), leaf number (62.3), branch number (9.07), cluster number (17.43), number of flowers plant-1 (148.7), fruit number (86.38), number of fruit plant-1 (86.08), fruit diameter (5.51 cm), fruit length (6.29 cm) and yield per hectare (66.46 t) compared to 2nd transplanting date, December 20 and 3rd transplanting date, December 30. Therefore, it is suggesting that earlier transplanting produced higher fruit yield of tomato.
