Why aren't my tomatoes setting fruit?
Friday, 26 Jun 09 Sunny 26°C / 79°F
My Better Boy tomato isn’t very “better.” It started out well, on the first set of flowers, 1 tomato. On the second set of flowers, 3 tomatoes. And that’s it. Any other sets of flowers – nothing. They just shrivel up and fall off.
I had missed one sucker that went crazy, so there were 2 active branches.
I wondered if that might be part of the problem? So I pruned one off tonight (and stuck it in the ground just for kicks – maybe it’ll root).
I’m having to hand-pollinate the zucchini, do I need to be doing something for the tomatoes? I thought they were self-pollinating (and my grape tomato plant seems to be doing JUST FINE in that area, it’s going to be falling over, stake and all, from the weight of all the tomatoes on it soon! It has 2 active branches, both are producing insane #s of tomatoes).
This plant also has something going on with the leaves (I figure some sort of nutrient-deficiency). They’re green, but curled up and leathery-feeling. So maybe that has something to do with the fruiting too. But I can’t find any answer to what it would be deficient in (and again, the grape tomato plant is thriving and they’re right next to each other in the garden.
