Tomato Trees

    5 responses

Jan starts with ...
Have planted a few Tomato Trees which apparently grow to 3m. Yields of up to 25kg per plant.
Planted them four weeks ago when the seedlings had eight leaves. Doing very well so far.
Has anyone else done this and what is the success rate. Any hiccups I should know about. Thanks

There seems to be very little information around about them Jan, I found a seedling at our local market [Mackay] last year but lost it and haven't seen one since.

Hi,

I have 4 beefsteak tomato plants which are now at least 1m tall and have been in the ground for a couple of months now.I seem to only have 1 tomato growing out of all of them.

They seem all very healthy and bushy but the flowers seem to die and just fall off?

Just wondering what the problem might be

Hello Lyndall
Whenever my tomato plants slacken off like that I give them a spray with Condies Crystals [ Potassium Permanganate ] which you can get from a chemist. Make a solution with water and probably a little wetting agent, not to strong, just a pinch to a litre of water. Do it once a week until they start producing and then when you think it's necessary.

I think Wayne's right. I always throw down some Sulfate of Potash (Potassium Sulfate) when I plant out tomatoes. Seems to help them flower and fruit. For established plants, a spray solution seems a good idea

Jan, I can't help you with your questions, as mine are only at the four leaf stage. But keep in touch on the forum, as I'm interested to see how these perform.
I bought the seeds on eBay. So far, not growing any bigger or faster than my other varieties.
