Where is the fruit sprouts??

This Spring my next door neighbor (sp) came over and as we chatted she began to snap off every sucker on my tomato plants. When I asked her about it she ,said,"the suckers will only starve your tomatoes of growth and energy". Then I asked her, "Where is the sprouts that produce the tomatoes". She was unable to answer. Now weeks later, I have tomato plants that are 4-5 foot tall and only one or two sprouts/suckers (that produce buds, flowers and tomatoes). Soooo, now I ask you all, if you remove all of the suckers from the plant, when and how can the plant prouce any tomatoes??

Gardening with love, Kiee
