I was pinching suckers this morning and was surprised to see several tomato plants with branches growing out of a cluster stem - is this normal? One cluster even had a branch plus a sucker growing off a cluster and another had two branches growing out of one cluster? This condition was only on the Brandy Boy and German Giant varieties - maybe it has something to do with heirloom tomato plants? The clusters on these plants are huge - 10 to 15 blossoms on a cluster?
I assume one just cuts the branches off the clusters?
