Tip of the Week

Now that your tomatoes are growing like weeds it it time to prune out the suckers. The advantages to pruning out the suckers on your tomatoes are increased fruit size, better air circulation which will help with disease prevention. The suckers are the stems growing out of the leaf crotch. You should remove the suckers from the bottom of the plant up to the first flower cluster. Remove them before they get too big, less than 3” long is a good rule of thumb. You will need to keep an eye on your tomato plants throughout the season and prune the suckers as they get big enough and you want to remove the yellow or dead leaves (especially seen on the bottom of the plant). You only want to prune indeterminate varieties; determinate varieties should not get pruned, you can leave the suckers on those plants.
