Dr. Wyche - No Blossoms

Novice tomato-gardener here -

Of my six different varieties of tomato plants, only the Dr. Wyche haven't yet gotten blossoms on them, though the plants are beautiful and healthy. They've grown at about the same rate as the other varieties. All of my vines were planted at the same time in raised beds and I feed every other week with Tomato-tone.

Dr. Wyche is supposed to be 80 days, but so is Boxcar Willie and it has blossoms, as do my various plum types. Do the bigger beefsteaks just take longer to blossom?

Perhaps the right answer is patience, but I wanted to check. :)

Your Dr. Wyche will put out blossoms when it's ready, so:

Patience is a virtue
Find it if you can
You'll find it in woman
But seldom in a man..

... so said my Swedish grandmother.

Now you can change woman to man in the third line and change man to woman in the last line, if you wish. LOL

DTM is short for Days to Maturity. It is an ESTIMATE of how long it takes to get ripe tomatoes, or any other produce, from the time you transplant the tomato or other plant, or plant the seeds in the garden.

I've had as much as two weeks difference from the listed DTM in the same variety in the same garden but different years, and even quite a bit of variation in different plants in the same year. As Carolyn indicated, ya just gotta wait it out.
