Prudens Purple: blooming heavily, all flowers fall off, zero fruit

last year
last modified: last year

Had tremendous success with Pruden's Purple in the Seattle area (it is the most delicious to our taste), but its been a total fail in the Willamette Valley. Plant is growing and blooming vigorously but all flowers fall off after blooming for a while. Plant is in a large nursery pot and irrigated once or twice daily. Have also fertilized with several things. I have a lot of tomato experience, this has never happened before. Adjacent cherry tomato and beefsteak are producing fruit.

I know its totally too late for tomatoes on this plant, but I'm interested to know what might have happened this year so I can avoid in future years.
