The Q&A Archives: Tomato Plant With No Tomatoes

Question: I have a very healthy tomato plant that doesn't have any flowers on it yet. I have not one tomato starting to grow. What can I do to correct this?

Answer: There are several possible reasons why this would happen. One is that the plant is just not mature enough to bloom, or, if it is not in full sun, that it needs more light. Another possibility is that it has been oversupplied with nitogen and is growing an excess of foliage over blooms. Usually, it is just a matter of time. Some varieties begin to bear much sooner than others. As long as the plant seems healthy, there isn't too much more you can do.
