Don’t be afraid of the green tomatoes that are supposed to stay green when ripe because they are SWEET. Yes sweet, not the bitter green of every unripe tomato.
Many people ask me, “Well, how do I tell when a green tomato is ripe?” “Feel ’em,” I reply. “If they are soft enough to feel moisture beneath the flesh, it’s ripe” But with some experience, you can generally tell by looking at the fruit.
Aunt Ruby’s German Green tomato, Grandma Oliver’s green tomato, and Charlie’s Green tomato have been favorites of mine for a long time. Our organic green tomato plants should be given a place in your garden if only just one variety.
This hard to find beauty is a must grow. A perfect green tomato with darker green glossy shoulders most averaging a pound. The flesh is lime green to white. Complex flavor, tropical with citrus and a bit of kiwi flavor. Good producer. If you’ve grown most of the Green when ripe, now try Kiwi! 10 […]
This is hands down my favorite green when ripe tomato. LOVE. If you normally don’t care for green tomatoes, this one will change your mind. This variety was discovered by Reinhard Kraft, Neukirchen, Germany in 2004. Large sturdy plants with most fruits weighing in at 1+ pounds. Sweet melony flavor. Won’t disappoint! 10 Seeds.
