My 2 Parks Whopperrs are 5ft and 3ft tall planted in 5 gal. buckets. The shorter one has sveeral blooms and has set a cluster of 4 tomatoes. Other blooms have not set fruit. The tall one has set only one tomato and though it has blooms some look to be drying uo despite good watering daily. Can I help the plants to set fruit? It seems to be getting a bit late. Thanks.

I know it's frustrating but extreme weather can keep tomato plants from developing fruits even though they flower. The heat renders the pollen sterile. There's a product called 'Tomato & Vegetable Blossom Set Spray' that you might try on your plants. Hope it works well for you.
