Tomato pollen isn't viable much over 90 degrees, so fruits won't set. What have your temperatures been? Another possibility is that the flowers aren't being pollinated at all because tomatoes are often ?self-pollinating.? Try gently tapping and shaking your plants in the early morning to see if you can get some fruit to set. When temperatures cool a bit, they should start flowering and setting fruit again. Good luck!
