Do tomatoes go red while still on the plant or do i have tick them and store them to wait for them to turn red.?



welcome to GoY,
they will ripen on the plant so don't worry. if you are waiting you can speed up the process by putting a ripe tomato next to one of the plants. it produces ethylene gas which ripe plants produce naturally. the tomatoes will start to ripen a regular pace after the first one goes red.

It will ripen without you doing anything at all. If the tomato is still green, it's still growing. However, many people love green tomatoes.
