Coeur de Boeuf Question


Recommended Posts

I have grown tomatoes before but never grown the Coeur de Boeuf. My question is this. Is the large flower the male flower to fertilise the smaller flowers or are the smaller flowers there to fertilise the large flower?. Do you have to nip any of the flowers out?

Also how many can you grow on a truss and how many trusses to a plant?

All tomato flowers should be bi-sexual AFAIK.


If you are growing under glass I would allow 5 or 6 trusses, outside 4 or 5 trusses.


No need to nip out flowers but do nip out any side shoots. 


The plant will decide how many fruits it can support per truss.  Just keep it well fed and watered.
