We all know to leave about 4 fruit trusses on a tomato plant and to prune out suckers and side shoots. But the ends of the fruiting trusses on my plants have turned up and shot up in the air like new side shoots. They still have fruit on but then they curl up and have a huge shoot on the end. Why is this happening? Is it normal, and should I prune these ends off?
Here are a couple of pictures. I've circled the fruiting trusses near the plant. In both cases the truss and the plant are at the back, and you can see where it then has a new megashoot on the end coming towards the camera which is about 2 feet long an curves up!
Do you think I should cut these off? I'm doubtful the plant can ripen all that fruit.
