Tomato Plants With Lots of Foliage but Few Tomatoes

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.

Big Tomato Plants, Lots of Flowers, No Fruit

Big plants, lots of flowers, no fruit. However, in the same garden, same soil, light and pollinators my plum and brandy wine are producing, while my German browns and Cherokees are not.
The plants also don’t seem to be getting as big as the plum type. Please advise.

Chance are the plants that are producing fruit are determent (ripens at the same time) and the others are indetermenant (ripens over a period of a few weeks.) Hit them all with an epson salt bath which aid in fruit development.
