I am growing indeterminate Ardwyna Paste tomatoes. The end of the bottom fruit trusses keeps on growing and producing more leaf and flowers. Should this tip growth be suppressed like leaf-axil suckers?

WhatsTheMuck writes: VG community, please correct if I'm wrong, but I believe that this is the nature of indeterminate plants. Pinching back on almost anything should encourage new growth, but if the growth is along a main growing stem, it seems that this is normal indeterminate tomato behavior. Just provide the appropriate support and fertilizer to support the extended growth.
