Tomato flowers

I have on my tomato plants what looks like what could turn ito flowers. They are small green buds. When will they bloom and when will they turn into tomatoes? Also will i have to pollinate them?

Re: Tomato flowers

A lot depends on the variety and weather conditions. But if they are buds, and they may well be, then I reckon another 2 weeks or so should see some flowers appearing.

No pollination is required if they are outside, the bees will do the job for you. Let me know if they are in a greenhouse, cos then they might need a bit more care.

Re: Tomato flowers

They are in the greenhouse. Also went in yesterday and i have yellow flowers now.Do i have to rub them like the strawberry flowers? Also i now have flowers on my cucumber plant but it is still only about 20cm high. do i have to self fertilise these flowers and is the plant big enough to sustain fruit?
