    If you have a small greenhouse, just nip them when they reach the top. You should just remove leaves below the ripening fruit only, unless they are damaged. However a few taken off will help air circulation a bit, so will not hurt.
    I took a few more off mine as the plant head was looking thin, and I needed some fruit off. However they will ripen in their own time. Just be patient. lol

    I think that I started too late this year. I have flowers and only one teeny weeny green tom....smaller than a pea! I do hope that I get some before too long.
