When to Replace Tomato Plants

I am growing tomato plants in containers and have a question for you all.
When the plant stops producing tomatoes and the plant is still green, is it
wise to pull out the plant and start with a new plant?

It depends upon whether the tomato vine is determinate (fruits ripen basically all at one time) or INdeterminate (the vine produces fruit throughout the entire growing season). This should answer your question. As to which type you have, refer to the seed packet, otherwise just wait and see.

No need to buy new plants!! There are shoots growing off the side of the main stem of your plant. Cut one of these and put in water until roots form then transplant to a container.
Now, to the stop producing and still green. If the plant is still blooming but not setting tomatoes, the #1 cause is hot weather. It's in the 90's & my plants haven't set new fruit in 2 weeks now.
