Help! My Precious Yellow Blossom!

14 years ago

HELP! I was examining my last remaining healthy tomato plant and checking the yellow blossoms and accidentally knocked one off (it was a little dry and shriveled looking, so I barely touched it and it came off very easily). The entire bud didn't go---just the yellow petaled flower itself---and what remains is the green "bracket" (not sure what term you use for the green "fingers" that hold the blossom) and a tiny pale green ridged bump in the center. Is that the tomato or is it just part of the bud?

Thanks for any responses. I could just kick myself. I am positively lethal to tomato plants so far...



If the flower came off but not the whole bud, does that mean the tomato that would have formed there is doomed?
