I have never grown heirloom before, and certainly not any tomatoes of a different color than the normal red. I labeled all the plants as I planted them, but the rain washed away all my marker, so I only know the store bought varieties. So how do I tell if what I am growing is a yellow tomato that is ripe, or a red tomato that needs to stay on longer. Luckily, I don't have any green tomatoes, so I don't have to worry about that.

Oh dear........... This is why I try to write all plant placements in my garden notebook. It always seem redundant when I do it, but then when the name on the tag fades I know what is where.

When the fruits are getting big you should start to be able to tell the difference, other than that, I have no practical advice.

On the bright side, it will be kind of like Christmas...SURPRISE! santa Good luck.

Easy, tomatoes soften up when ripe. I don't label any of my 20+ tomato plants. You just feel them regularly and then you'll know when they start to get softer they are close. Most of mine I'll pick where they will sit out for a day or two and then be ready. Once you taste them you'll know if they were too late or too early then when the next one ripens up on the plant adjust accordingly.

i go by how easily the fruit comes off when i pull on it. ripe tomatoes will release without much effort. if they feel like they are trying to hang on to their stems, they are not ready to leave home yet.
