Tomato problems

Essex, United Kingdom Gb

why do my tomato flowers have huge, almost double centred flowers and no sign of fruit - some 3 weeks of flower now?

Asked from the GoYpedia tomatoes page



'Double' flowers tend to be sterile. Could you put up a photo of the flowers please. You can just add it by editing your question

If they are just large,open blooms with multiple petals, many of the Beefsteak varieties do this, but their pollen is also among the most sensitive to extreme temperatures. If they are in a greenhouse that gets quite hot in the day, try ventilating it better. If they are in the open, but the nights have been sweater-worthy, try putting them under cloches, to hold in the heat at night.
