Tomato truss growth

I have three tomato plants in pots in my conservatory which have grown healthily to approx 5ft in height with multiple trusses. The problem I have is that each truss has a couple of large tomatos (still green) and a cluster of tiny marble size growths.

Should I pick these green tomatos now to aid the growth of the small ones? Or should I leave them until ripened and hope the others will 'catch up'?

I water the pots daily and add a tomato feed every third day.

Thanks - DM

As the plant grows you should also snap out shoots that grow in leaf joints (so you dont get multiple 'branches' at the joint) and when your plant has produced four sets of flowering trusses, you should pinch off the growing tip.

This concentrates growth and produces a better quality crop.
