Q.Tomato Plant Issues

Zone 93036 | Anonymous added on May 13, 2021 | Answered

My beefsteak tomatoe plant came with alot of fruit. Now the plant has stopped growing upward. It has alot of tomatoes and they are turning red but small and hard.It is probably 2-3ft tall with at least 10 tomatoes. The leaves were yellowing, so I thought I was overwatering. Now green but no new growth with leaves. Any suggestions?
