Tall tomatos without fruit...

Post  Squat_Johnson on 6/29/2010, 3:33 pm

I have some tomatos that are growing nicely, about 5-6 ft, that have little if any fruit... They are kinda long legged... Could this be related to all the 95degree days we have been having? (left bed - toms on the first two trellises)

Have you seen blossoms on the plants? It could possibly mean your soil is heavy with nitrogen, which will encourage foliage at the expense of the fruit. link

I will take better pics soon... Blossoms are there, they just turn yellow and drop off/die off for the most part. Yes, could be too much nitrogen. I might need to change my fertilizer.

I also heard that epsom salts help the toms keep their flowers better in the heat?

If nightime temps are too high your 'maters will not set.. Also..I have late season tomatoes that still have not set fruit yet altho the plants are over my head...
