Is there anything I can do to promote fruiting during 90 deg. plus days?

Unfortunately, tomato pollen isn't viable much over 90 degrees, so fruits won't set. Another possibility is that the flowers aren't being pollinated at all because tomatoes are usually ?self-pollinating.? Try gently tapping and shaking your plants in the early morning to see if you can get some fruit to set. Otherwise, keep your plants healthy and they will start flowering and setting fruit when temperatures abate at the end of summer.
