Tomatoes Its not About the Colour!

It can sometimes be overwhelming to know how to pick the perfect tomato. Here are a few tips to help make sure that your tomatoes will be the tastiest! A common misconception is that the redder the tomato, the more ripe it is. But don’t be fooled, its not all about the colour!
1. A ripe tomato is a firm tomato
2. Don’t be afraid to use your nose! A ripe tomato should have a garden fresh aroma.
3. Check the weight of the tomato, a ripe tomato should be heavier than an unripe one. So try it out by comparing the weight of a few tomatoes.
