Tree Tomato Tamarillo


Anonymous added on April 18, 2018 | Answered

Having read the your article I have checked my tomatoes and some are red enough to pick but quite a few are already falling from the tree which are not fully ripe. Do I just throw these ones away or will they ripen on their own? Does the softness of the fruit even though it is not fully red mean the fruit is ready (edible) or do I have to wait until the fruit is fully red?

Stephanotis blooms on new growth- the new shoots it puts out will have the most flowers- so pruning them back will reduce flowering temporarily. However, you can prune to reshape the plant, and then wait for it to regrow and flower again. This article has a guide to pruning this plant:
