ANSWER: The period of time that ranges from blossoming to fruiting is something in the neighborhood of 20 to 60 days. Why is there such a significant difference in the range? It is mostly dependent on the kind of tomato that you chose to plant in your garden. It takes longer for smaller kinds to yield fruit than it does for larger ones.
How long after flowering do tomatoes produce fruit?
Tomato plants have anywhere from 28 to 85 days to begin producing fruit once their flowers have been pollinated successfully. The answer to that question actually depends on the kind. The first fruit can appear on some of the earliest developing tomato types, such as the Fourth of July, as early as 28 days after the flowers have faded (49 days after transplant).
How long does it take for tomatoes to be ripe?
It takes around 45 to 50 days for a tomato to mature from the time its flowers set fruit. I hope this information is of some use. I thought I had the world in the palm of my hand, but it BROKE!! I believe that when it comes to tomatoes, the phrase “days to harvest” relates more to the number of days from the time of putting out than it does to the time when the first blossom appears.
How do I get my tomato plants to produce fruit?
When planting, use a fertilizer that is balanced for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (10-10-10), but after the first blooms appear, switch to a fertilizer that is concentrated on phosphorus and potassium (5-10-10). Because of this, the plant will be able to produce additional blooms and focus its energy on transforming those blossoms into fruits.
