If side shoots are removed on Gardeners delight tomato plants, can I get bigger tomatos with a simular taste?

I dont have a question, this is a serious question



I have removed all side shoots and 90% of the foliage on our tomatoes to encourage the formation of tomatoes. This is what we normally do and it seems to be working better than usual this year as we have a great crop of ripe and ripening toms.

You won't get bigger tomatoes because the variety isn't big, they are a cherry tomato.

Good point! They will, hopefully, however get a bit more sun to encourage ripening :-)

How do I say thanks?
