Best Answer

First you have to find all of the little branches that come up in between the big branches of the plant and the stem and pinch them off at the stem. (They will come off easily). But then you have to look for the ground suckers. (branches that grow upward from the roots of the plant.) Tear off the ground suckers at the bottom and that's it! You may have to keep repeating this for awhile until you get your tomatoes to ripen. Suckering tomato plants will increace the size of your tomatos and decrease the amount of small, little tomatoes. Have fun!!
