Top Tomato Tips

Want to mantain the freshness of your tomatoes? Then follow these top tomato tips:

  1. To enjoy fresh tomatoes at their peak of flavor, use when fully ripe. Ripe tomatoes should be completely red, reddish-orange or even a bright yellow, depending on variety. They will have a sweet, subtle aroma and will give slightly to gentle palm pressure.

  2. When purchasing, select tomatoes at various degrees of ripeness and store them at room temperature stem-side down in a basket or bowl on your kitchen counter or table. The tomatoes will continue to ripen, improving both their flavor and texture. Use the ripest fruit first, just as your do with bananas and avocados.

  3. Never refrigerate a tomato that is not fully red or ripe! Cold temperatures destroy flavor and stop the ripening process. Once fully ripe, a tomato can be refrigerated, but only for a few days; any longer results in flavor deterioration.

  4. To hasten ripening, place fresh tomatoes in a brown paper bag with an apple. The apple gives off a natural gas called ethylene. This gas speeds up the ripening process.
