Tomatoe Plant ?

cao409June 7, 2005

Hi Everyone,

My tomatoe plants are doing great they're not that big yet.But they're starting to get flowers on them. My question is should I pinch the flowers off till they get bigger or should I just leave them. I don't remember them getting flowers this early years past. Thanks in advance for your help.

Leave 'em. About the only time people recommend removing flowers is if the plant was already flowering in a container that was being transplanted out into the ground (thus there would be some root disturbance in the move and the plant has to re-establish itself)... and even then, I have had no problem with leaving the flowers on. Tomatoes are tough plants and will love the weather we are going to be having this week (warm).

Definitely leave the flowers on - wherever there is a blossom, a tomato will grow.
