Question Sunlight for Tomatoes?

How much do they need per day to get an average harvest? I have an extremely shady backyard and have placed the garden in the best place I could find and it seems my plants are only getting about 4 hrs of sunlight (max.). My DH is going to hopefully trim some more of the trees maybe giving them one more hour a day, but I don't think we can do much more right now b/c we can't take the whole tree down just yet!

Think they will last or that I will get some kind of fruit from them?
Thanks in advance!!!

You will get some fruit from them. It would be better to have 6 or more hours. I have had volunteer tomatoes make smallish fruit in light shade in the past.
