The Q&A Archives: Storing Tomatoes

Question: What is the best way to store long keeper tomatoes?

Answer: Picked ripe, the "long keeper" types of tomatoes are best stored in a single layer on a cool shelf, which would be at about 55 degrees. Before storage, remove the stems and wash the tomatoes in a solution of one and a half teaspoons of chlorine bleach per gallon of water, then dry thoroughly. Check frequently for signs of deterioration.
