Tomato Harvesting Question`


So...my tomatoes were growing OUT OF CONTROL so my boyfriend decided to prune them...well, on one of the plants (yellow tomato) he pruned pretty much ALL of the leaves off! There were about 13 tomatoes that were still green about to ripen. They are all still on the vine but will they die now that the leaves are gone? Thank you!

Re: Tomato Harvesting Question`

hard to say...if the plant truly has ALL of the leaves cut off, it's pretty much a gonner. It may hang on long enough to let the maters come ripe on the vine, but then the issue is sun scald. If I were you, I'd probably pick whats there and hope they ripen inside.
