Brandywine Tomatoes

Tomato Plants With Lots of Foliage but Few Tomatoes


Allen added on May 30, 2015 | Answered

I have beautiful tomato plants with lots of foliage but few tomatoes. The tomato plants are Brandywine. They have lots of foliage (very dense) and 6-ft tall. The plants are exposed to full sun but do not have many tomatoes and those tomatoes are shaded from the sun for part of the day. Will the tomatoes that are on the plants ripen without being exposed to direct sun?

Brandywine is notoriously a small producer.
I have had some years where my plant only grew 3 tomatoes.
I personally have stopped growing Brandywine varieties and have found many other heirlooms with nice size and delicious flavor that produces lots of fruit.
A personal favorite is Ananas Noir or Black Pineapple.

I like to plant tomatoes in full sun but a minimum of 6 hours will be sufficient.
