Hi,

I have 4 determinate tomatoes growing that have begun to produce fruit.

I know these do not need to be pruned like indeterminate, but will the fruit that is being shaded by leaves from its own plant benefit from being pruned thus exposing to full sunlight?

Many thanks,
Thomas

No, the fruit is being protected from sunscald by the leaves
