Moving Tomato's

We've recently moved and my tomato's are calling me wanting to come to the new house.
Question is can I successfully move them?
A friend told me "Once they bare fruit you can't move them cause they'll go into shock."

Transplanting is always a strain on a plant. If you move them you will lose ground with the development. They will likely lose any existing fruit. They may be a while getting back to where they are and producing again. They may not recover and just hang around the rest of the season. They may die.

Of course, you have moved and don't have any tomatoes. If you move them and they die, you aren't any worse off. Then again, you could ride by the old homestead and tend to them and pick them everyday.

I still own the old place and rent it out. Guess I could sharecrop with the tennant.
