If you do that when the fruit are forming, you are likely to end up with blossom end rot, where there is a black flattened patch at the flower end of the fruit. This is because the plant is unable to take up enough calcium because of the lack of water.
You say they are in small pots. i grow mine in florists buckets with holes drilled in the bottom. I dont let the plants dry out so that they droop.On a very hot day, that may mean watering twice a day, once a day in normal conditions, less in overcast or raining.
