Pruning Sun Gold to a Manageable Size

yumtomatoes(10a/FLA)August 16, 2011

After conducting more research I now realize that the Sun Gold plants can get huge. I can't let them grow more than 6 feet due to space limitations and because I am not going to have to get out a ladder to pick fruit. And because I have to move them around to get enough light and if the plants get too large, they containers get too heavy for me to move easily.

How should I prune them to keep them to a manageable height?

They will be in containers and I will be using stakes in the containers to support them.

OK, that won't hurt the plant?
