TOMATO VARIETIES THAT GROW EXTENDED TRUSS SHOOTS

This happens to some variety’s of Tomatoes when after the truss has set the tomato reverts to growing another stem and producing flowers for more fruit.

The most likely reason is  that where they originate a lot grow as vines along the ground and this would allow then to spread seed further,I have always removed them as it allows the truss to ripen better and tomatoes further up the plant to be more productive
