Hi Tomsk - the tomatoes grow where the flowers were https://www.google.com/search?q=tomato+flowers+and+fruits&rlz=1C1SVEE_enGB425GB425&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=ZVjxUZ7UH4PD0QXyx4G4Ag&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1241&bih=584#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=fUecYkCh4xJDlM%3A%3BVeaRM4sdZwopwM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fsisu.typepad.com%252Fphotos%252Funcategorized%252F2008%252F06%252F03%252Ftomato_flower_fruit.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fsisu.typepad.com%252Fsisu%252F2008%252F06%252Fdo-tomatoes-dre.html%3B350%3B255 .  They will grow to their full size, depending on what type they are (cherry, plum, 'ordinary' or beefsteak) and then they will start to turn colour - so late summer through to early autumn.

Afraid tomato plants only last the one year (in the UK anyway) so next spring you start all over again - watch out, you'll get addicted to tomato growing

Thanks for the last comment, was thinking my first try at tomatoes was a failure, but I have time yet.  Mine are planted outside, stems look healthy and plenty of flowers.  Ty dove

Tomsk, the flowers wither and fall off if they haven't been pollinated. It's common. Not all flowers produce tomatoes.
