Tomato Plants
Q.

My tomato plant.

Zone Orlando, Fl. 32822 | aguerra8920 added on July 4, 2018 | Answered

The tomatoes in my plant are green. It's that normal? I ask because the tomatoes have no sign of turning their original color. (red). Below is a pick of the tomato tree. As you guys can read, I have been gardening for a very short time. That's to you guys I'm learning quite a lot. Still have a lot to learn. I appreciate the tips and help I get from my professional friends

Your tomatoes have gone from dark to lighter green. Next comes red! Heat over 90 F. often halts ripening of the tomatoes as the plant is stressed by the heat - even if kept watered. When (if) it cools off a bit, ripening will proceed. If serious heat is on-going, think about using "shade cloth" to lessen the sun's intensity.
