Cherry Tomatoes

Too Tall Tomatoes

Anonymous added on September 29, 2015 | Answered

This year I grew some Sweet 100's cherry tomatoes and for the first time ever. They grew 7 feet (no kidding)! They were obnoxious--what could cause this to happen? In previous years, this did not happen. Also, I had to thin the leaves frequently so te sun and air could ripen the tomatoes. Is this ok to do?

What you are seeing is normal. The expected height for Sweet100's is 8-12 feet tall. In previous years you may have grown a different variety that did not have that height potential.

As long as you are not overzealous removing leaves I don't foresee it being a problem particularly if it did not impact your tomato yield/harvest.
