What Determines the Final Size of a Ripe Fruit ?

(Southeastern Penna. U.S.A,)

Just Joined Today 7/20/2015. I have always grown a garden, but as previously mentioned, I grew tired of playing in the Dirt. At 62, it's alot harder to keep up. The Body Doesn't Work the same as it use to. I heard about growing vegetables in water with the addition of nutrients. This concept of Gardening really sparked an interest.

So this is my first year of Hydroponics. I know that with soil, there are all types of fertilizer blends and soil conditioning additives. Everything is coming along just fine, " "EXCEPT FOR THE HARVEST SIZE OF MY MATURE, RIPE VEGETABLES"...

My Tomatoes are ripening OK, but they're just alittle bigger than a Golf Ball. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing, or not doing to produce tomatoes at least the size of a Hard Ball.
Even my Bell Peppers are ripening as miniature peppers.

What am I Missing ? ? ? Seems to be a common problem.
Like a nutrient.


"CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH SUGGESTIONS."

Awaiting Replies,
BobWinJr

Fruit Size

What Variety or type of tomato are you growing, fruit size could be a combination of light and Nutrients or Root ball size but its most likely light and nutrients, also what type of system are you using, we need all these questions answered before even getting a clue, Nutrient temp the list goes on and on, light cycle etc.
