Several conditions can cause tomatoes to not set fruit. Too much nitrogen fertilizer, nighttime temperatures over 70 degrees F., low temperatures below 50 degrees F., irregular watering, insects such as thrips or planting the wrong variety may result in poor fruit set. Any of these conditions can cause poor fruit set, but combinations can cause failures. Any less than 8 hours of direct sunlight will result in a spindly growing, nonproductive plant with healthy foliage.

Hope this information helps you determine just what might be going on with your tomates.
