Answer: I'm not sure why you're pulling the flowers off your tomato plant - but if you leave them on, the plant will develop tomatoes. Flowers are the beginning of fruit formation. When pollen is transferred from the male parts of the flower to the female parts, the ovary (found at the base of the flower) begins to swell. Then the petals fall off and a tomato will develop. Every time you pull a flower off, you're pulling off a potential tomato.
