Do Deer Eat Tomatoes?

Answer

Deer, do eat tomatoes. The deer devour the tomato directly from the vine, trampling surrounding plants in the process. There are several ways to help protect your tomatoes in a safe and natural manner. One method is to mix a homemade repellent consisting of water and raw eggs. This will create an unpleasant odor that deer do not like. Another, less stinky, alternative is to incorporate herbs into the garden. Plant oregano, dill, sage or rosemary between and around the tomatoes. This method may not keep the deer 100% at bay, but will greatly minimize the risk of damage to tomato plants and surrounding vegetation.
