Growing Big Tomatoes

If you like big ripe tomatoes, stick your tomato or tie it to a garden fence to keep it off the ground. Then when it gets growing good, take all the small branches off, leaving the 4 biggest branches.


When more suckers start to grow, pinch them off of the plant as they will take the nutrients that will make your tomato grow bigger. Keep them watered if it doesn't rain.

You will be proud of yourself when you take off them big red tomatoes.

Just a note, some tomatoes are actually climbing varieties and some are bush varieties. The bush varieties will do better with this type of pruning, while the climbing ones will do better with one long trellised vine (other suckers pinched off). :)
