Seeing Red

Two grape tomatoes ready to be picked from the garden.

The Better Boy tomatoes are being stubborn (or I'm being impatient).  They still have not turned red!

Do you let your tomatoes ripen on the vine?  Or do you pick them before they turn red?


  1. My hubby likes to pick them when they start to turn and sit them on a dishtowel on the counter. We have some that are just beginning to turn a little. Your grape tomatoes look so good, I'm ready to eat them!

  2. I try to leave them on the vine until almost red but sometimes I have to pick them before the squirrels/chipmunks/birds/etc get to them!


  3. I wait until they turn red and then take out a pretty bowl or basket and pick them!! Makes me feel wonderful..

  4. You are blessed to have a few red tomatoes, mine are still green. The weather has been cool which the tomatoes don't care for. I always wait until my tomatoes are red to pick them.
