My Tree Tomato Plant Is Drying Up

My tree tomato plant is drying up. What may be the problem and its management?

ANSWERS

Is the plant in the ground or container? If containered, has it been allowed to dry out? If so, when watered now, does the water run right through? If so, soak the plant in a tub of water 6-12 hours. If the soilball has dried out and pulled away from the sides of the container, it will need to be soaked to expand to it's former size. It might also need a bit more soil.
If it isn't a water issue, is the plant in the sunshine (outdoor), or indoor? If indoor, it probably isn't getting enough light. Vegetables require a minimumm of 6 hours direct sun.
If it sin't a lighting issue, how old is the plant? Even though tomatoes are consideredd perennial in warmer climates, they do have a useful life span.
If isn't any of the above, you could have a pest of disease problem.

Pruning increases fruit size, so in summer, trim some of those leggy growing branch ends back by 24 inches.

You should be pruning these once a year. It is always best to prune when the tree is not actively growing... A time when it seems to be at a standstill. This article will give you more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tree-tomato/grow-tree-tomato-tamarillo.htm
