Hi, I tried this seed this year and have beautiful plants and lots of blossoms, but none will set, they die and fall off. My other varieties are doing well, but not the first tomato on these. Any ideas?? I am stumped.
What are your prevailing temps days? And nights?
THere are several reasons for blossom drop, I got a lot last year and getting some again this year. Its some varities are affected more than others.
I have 1884 on one side, italian heirloom on center, then brandywine on another side. All fed and watered the same, get same sunlight. italian heirloom has less foilage and a lot of tomatoes while the other two simple fail to convert flowers into fruit for some reason.
I had some root knots that I discovered last year so I treated the entire area with double strength beneficial nemetoges, bonemeal, and calcium, Lets see how it goes.
Sometimes conditions are not quite ready for fruiting, while it differs from variety to variety
What varieties are you comparing it to? GG is a late season variety and they often don't set as early as many other varieties. Have you been pruning it?
I have 2 of them this year and while they are huge plants none of mine have set any fruit yet either but I know from past experience that they will later.
