The Q&A Archives: viva tomato plants

Question: My family and I purchased a quantity of viva tomato plants, ranging from Bush champion to cherry size, and although the plants flourished wonderfully, only the cherry bore fruit! WHAT GIVES?

Answer: Jonathan,

You may have planted too late. Larger fruited tomatoes will stop setting fruit when the days get hot and the nights rise to the mid 70's. Overfertilizing can delay fruiting and lack of sunlight can also result in lack of fruit. It may have been a combination of these factors too.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
