How long do tomato plants take to produce fruit?
Tomatoes take 60 days to more than 100 days to harvest, depending on the variety (see more about varieties below). Due to their relatively long growing season requirements (and late planting date), most gardeners plant small “starter plants” or transplants instead of seeds after the weather has warmed up in spring.
How long after flowers do you get tomatoes?
Depending upon the variety of tomatoes you choose, they can take anything between 25 to 60 days to form fruits after flowering. The smaller varieties of tomatoes ideally take about three weeks to a month to form fruits after the plants have borne flowers.
Why do tomato plants flower but no fruit?
If you have plenty of big blooms but no tomatoes, it may be too cold and wet or too hot and dry. This results in what is known as blossom drop and will, of course, make it much more difficult for plants to produce fruit. Poor pollination – Weather can also be a factor with pollination.
