|I put my tomatos in the ground the first week in June. They had sat for about three weeks on my porch and in that time fruit began growing. The fruit continues to grow but not the plants in the ground. The majority of the plants are San Marzano and the rest are Celebrity. What I'd like to know is should I remove the existing fruit to have the plant focus on itself instead of the fruit.|

|I think removing the tomatoes would be commonly recommended but I have also left them on and got earlier tomatoes......your choice.

|How tall are your plants? Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'San Marzano') as well as Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum 'Celebrity') are said to attain heights to 5 feet but I agree with Paul, it's your choice whether to remove the fruit or allow them to continue to grow and perhaps ripen.

|I've found that determine tomatoes, tend to grow tomatoes in spurts. Slack off Production, then spurt again. Etc.
