I think maybe I planted too many tomatoes. Now having to eat tomatoes at least once a day, and freeze some every week. Embarrassment of riches. Very Happy

Here are some of my Romas, and two freebies from the plant growing out of my compost bin!

Toemato, Tahmato 959632 congrats!

how long does it take for a tomato to get ripe?

Im in the PNW and our weather has not been the greatest....i have a rainbow tomato plant that has about 15 green fuits on it....they are getting really large but they are staying green for several weeks now....i had to cut one off tonight because it was mushy on the top......we ended up moving the plant to another location so that it can get the most sun it can.....it was getting a lot of sun where it was but our red rock garden holds the heat better......

I'm not sure how long it takes, sometimes it feels like forever. Smile Last year I had to harvest a lot of green ones before a frost and ripen them in a cardboard box.

It takes just as long as it takes for a watched pot to boil.....

Different varieties take different lengths of time. Some are ripening after 55 days and others take 90 for that pinkish cast to begin.
Weather also makes a big difference.
All we can do, as gardeners, is wait and see.
My Early Cherry has about 8 ripe toms today but all my other varieties are still green and some are getting pretty large, but still green. I have many different varieties so I'm keeping a journal on times and so forth and also taking quite a few pictures so I'll know better what to expect next year.

Toemato, Tahmato Empty General Rule of Thumb?

Post  mijejo on 7/21/2011, 5:32 pm

I am noticing that the cherry and grape varieties are ripening sooner. Some of the varieties I have are: Sweet 100, Black Cherry, Juliet.
The larger varieties include: Cherokee Purple, Brandywine, Mortgage Lifter, Big Boy, Jet Star, and Granny Smith.
Although I have plenty of fruit, only the Jet Star is showing any color. It is not yet ready to pick. Oh, I do know that the Granny Smiths will not redden. However, the fruits are still very rigid.
Therefore, I am wondering if most of the smaller varieties (cherry and grape) ripen eralier than the larger ones.
Who agrees/disagrees?

Typically, smaller tomatoes, such as grape and cherry tomatoes, will ripen sooner than larger ones.

Even though the days to matruity on a seed pack or the label on a transplant may not be acurate for your area, they will give you a guide as to which tomatoes to expect to ripen first.
