Well it all depends on what you want to do with your tomatoes,
ie i now live here in france and we eat a lot of fresh salads and chutney is a must for our salads and so both green chutney i use lots of the green tomatoes and the fully grown red tomatoes are again just perfect for those fruity tasting red tomatoe chutney,
"But" have you tried the russian black tomatoes yet?
For those who have not tried them they are infact a very dark red "nearly black" and the taste is sweet tasting but very nice raw or cooked, try them im sure you'll like them,
these make nice chutney or jams (jelly)
Just grow them the same way as your normal red toms no special treatment needed.

It is an heirloom variety so I find it hard to grow them here in Florida though. I need the greater disease resistance offered by the newer hybrid varieties.
As far as when to pick your tomatoes, they will have the best flavor if you wait until they are all red and soft to the touch.
