Pinch off sprouts and branches start to grow off of the central stem, and (with) leaves that look dry or dead. These little sprouts and branches will rob the plant of nutrients. Pinching them off makes sure your growing cherry tomato plants will continue to flourish. But do not prune them before fruiting. This act discourages flowers and fruits forming at the top of the plant. Watch the tomatoes for signs of ripening, such as turning red. When they are red, pick them. The riper they are, the easier they are to pull off the plant. Pollinate the little yellow flowers to produce fruits. Gently shake the plant or brush the outer edge of flower to move pollen into the centre of the flower.
