I have a pink cherry tomato plant that gave me about 25 tomatoes so far but I don't see any new blossoms. I was just wondering if more will grow once all the ones I have now?
It should keep producing until the first frost. Best of luck. Unless of course it is a determinate variety. But I've never heard of a determinate cherry; I'd be kind of frustrated if there were one too. :D cheers.
by the way- determinate means it can stop producing fruit before the first frost.
Tomatoes flower in waves. Yours are getting ready for another flush of flowers. This is more noticable in beefsteaks but cherries do it as well.
A small dose of nitrogen would encourage additional growth and help the flowering - unless you used fertilizer in the soil preparation. It would help to know the variety name.
Reaverg --- Determinate Cherry Tomatoes - How about Husky Cherry Red, Garten Perle, Red Robin, Tiny Tim, Tumbling Tom, Aunt Ruby's German Cherry, Balconi Red, Balconi Yellow, Baxter Bush Cherry, Cherry Grande, Chibikko, Ditmarsher, Florida Basket, Green Grape, and Micro Tom - to mention a few.
Indeterminate varieties produce until a killing frost.
Determinate varieties produce their tomatoes and are done (yes some determinates will produce more than one "batch").
That's why it is important to know which type you have.
If you know the variety we can tell you which type it is (determinate or indeterminate).

It just said pink cherry on the tag. The only problem is that I have tiny black flying beatles eating the leaves. Will this stop the plant from producing again?
I have the same thing with three grape toms! No more growing tips after last batch of tomatoes. The plants ended in tomato trusses and are now starting to yellow some. Lots of greens left that im sure will turn.
Thats one mistake i wont make next year. This spring i didnt know the difference between ind. and det.
Also if the seller doesnt provide that info on the tag,i wont be buying.
Heres some pics of the leaves and the culprits.
Heres two of the insects. Any Ideas what they are?
they look like some kind of flea beetle. there are many different species.
That picture does look like the flea beetles (or what I've been calling flea beetles) I have around here.
Ted, I guess I should have consulted your spreadsheet of over 400 tomato varieties before making my post. :D Thanks for that by the way.
