|I have tomatoes bearing small fruit (unripe) in containers. The containers are only about a gallon in size, so I would love to put them in larger containers. Can I do this without affecting fruit production?|

|No, if you disturb it now, more than likely it will go into transplant shock and die, just water well for the rest of the season|

|I exclusively grow tomatoes in containers and guide interested locals in doing the same.
I agree with Christine.
For THIS plant (this year) you'll just have to live with small fruit and very poor production.
BUT. . .it's not to late to start ANOTHER tomato plant: thge big box stores have some larger plants. . . just remember, the SMALLEST container for tomato plants (more than about two foot tall at maturity) is 5 gallons (the typical shop bucket). The bigger, the better, since tomatoes are greedy little things, in ALL regards!
They reward you for their extra room by producing more fruit and (if there is a range of fruit size) larger fruit.
