Tomato Myths, Debunked

Tomato season is upon us, we thought we’d share some helpful hints about summer’s favorite “fruit”!






Myth: Never refrigerate tomatoes.

Store at room temperature unless they are very, very ripe. To halt the ripening process, you can refrigerate them one or two days at most!

Myth: Store tomatoes stem side up.

Though it might look a little weird, storing your fresh tomatoes stem side down can help prevent bruises!

Myth: To ripen tomatoes, leave them uncovered.

Place underripe tomatoes in one layer in a paper bag and close it loosely. Leave in a warm, dry spot, and check daily for ripeness!
