My potted sweet 100 is really ripening slowly. I find there's maybe a tomato or two ripe every other day. Will this be the rate that they ripen for the rest of the summer? It's happening too slow for me to use the tomatoes for any cooking or feeding to my family. I really need them to ripen faster than this... am I being impatient? Will the late summer season cause them to ripen quicker? :( On the right is the plant. It's pretty large, about 6' high. I even cut it back! it was really tall, but I've been suckering them (I'm aware of the anti-sucker movement lol) and cutting them back, but now that the plant has begun ripening the few tomatoes at the bottom, I've stopped suckering and cutting it back and I'll just let it grow for the rest of the summer unless It gets too tall that I can't stake it.
I know you can't tell, but the entire plant has a lot of tomato clusters, big and small. All green. *sigh*... I guess I'm hoping that I'll be told that yeah when the season hits, they'll all ripen up pretty quick? :( Any advice or heads up would be awesome, Thanks in advance!
