Will I get red tomatoes? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by bchittenden2

I planted my tomatoes in a spot before the threes were all filled in above. Now, they don't get that much direct sunlight due to all the tree leaves. They have tons of tomatoes, but they are all green. Will I ever get red tomatoes???

With any luck, your tomatoes will mature. Watch for dark green shoulders (where the stem is attached) and lighter green coloration on the rest of the fruit. If the shoulders darken and the rest lightens, the tomatoes will eventually ripen. If the tops or shoulders do not turn dark green, it isn't likely the fruits will ripen. Let's hope for the best!
