When should I expect to eat from my tomato plants? The tomatoes are currently green.
This is largely dependent on temperature. Tomatoes like nighttime temps above 60 and the hotter the better during the day (within limits, I suppose). Cool weather will slow ripening. If the tomatoes are full size, expect ripening to happen within 2 weeks. It is ready for picking when it falls into your hand with only the gentlest of tugs. That last bit of ripening is worth the wait!
