During ripening, always store with greens up - this helps to avoid the bruising that can result from storing tomatoes on their side.

 Tomatoes are ripe when they give slightly to the touch and have a sweet, fruity aroma. Don’t push too hard, tomatoes are delicate!

Miss the boat and dealing with some overripe tomatoes? Use ‘em up in your own tomato sauce, gazpacho or salsa!
