It may seem obvious – tomatoes are ready to pick when they are evenly a lush red color. But what if, like me, you are waiting for a pink variety to go red before harvesting them?
Each variety of heirloom tomatoes look different when they are ripe. Some old-fashioned tomatoes are yellow, some orange, some red, some pink, some have stripes and some even look almost black. Some ripe heirloom tomatoes are even still green!!
