The most likely cause is lack of pollination. You need to play honey bee with a paintbrush. Dab the flower center and spread the pollen from flower to flower.

Seedlings should be planted after the last frost. The plants should receive about 6 to 8 hours of sunlight. You will need 2 or more seedlings to plant for starters. They should be planted 3 to 4 inches deep 2 to 3 feet apart. Water thoroughly in the morning & consistantly everyday, especially through dry spells.

Make sure that your tomato plants are in plenty of sun, and are kept in slightly damp soil. Adding Epsom salts to the soil could help as well. Tomatoes tend to fruit in late spring and early autumn, so patience may be the best remedy in this situation.
