Heres my bench at the moment. The red ones are meant to be Brandywines which are a large pink beefsteak and thought by many around the world as the best tasting of all. But its not as the seedlings came up regular leaf not potato leaf, so the tomato I saved seed from was obviously crossed with a regular leaf red something. But they taste amazing
The darker ones a Cherokee Purples and one of my favourites that I grow every year. They are the most grown tomato in the US much like Grosse Lisse here.

i grow 1000+ tomato vines a year, but i never strip or pull suckers. my brother pulls and strips his , but he never gets the yields that i do. the only time i trim one is to take cuttings to clone new plants off good looking stock. some times i make 30-40 clones off a real nice one.
to clone i cut the end off at an angle, dip in water then dip in rooting hormone and place in soil. with in a week it has rooted and after 3 weeks they are ready to replant. clones produce fruit fast.
if you have a plant that has been a winner, and it starts to get thin and wispy making small fruit clone it.
the further the fruit gets from the root the less nutrients it gets. its like a pump lifting water at a certain point its just can't do it.
tip.... do remove brown dead junk from the plants, the rotting leaves can induce fungis and mold.

could we......cut back our tomato vines to (say 30cm) of main stem. Would they reshoot and keep producing?

Nice info BW.... :clap:

I've kept a few tomato bushes going for multiple years, sometimes I've take them back just a bit, other times I've left them pretty much slowly growing over winter without cutting them back at all.. Haven't really experimented much though so don't know which may be better...
