Getting Green Tomatoes to turn Red

Discussion in 'Tomatoes' started by coloradosmoker, Nov 11, 2011.

  1. I had a lot of green tomatoes I had to take off the vines about a month ago because it was going down to the 20's &30's I had  about 3--5 dozen my mother told me to wrap each on in newspaper

    put in a box or storage box put in basement I thought she was crazy I did it  in about 2 or 3 weeks I checked them & they were all red & when we ate the they were just as good as letting the sun turning them red-----Ken

  2. Good tip. Green tomatoes are good sliced, breaded and fried. That's what they do with them down here.

    Thats what I'm SCREAMINGGGGGGG.. Fried Green Tomatoes.. YUM YUMMMMM
  5. Put 'em in a bag with bananas or apples, both release ethylene gas, which turns tomatoes red.

    Every time I go to see my Father and Step Mother she wants me to bring her green tomatoes never ripe ones. She puts them in newspaper and into the closet and eats them as they get ripe. The last trip down I took here 20 lbs anywhere from just starting to turn to real green that should hold he a little while
