Help! My tomatoes are still green!!!

pikachu(Bay Area, CA)September 29, 2005

I planted a celebrity and a cherry in my backyard early summer. Both of them have nice fruits on the vine, but they are still green! About a month ago, I got may be three dozens of red cheeries - excellent tasting ones - but that's the end of the story. What did I do wrong? The plants seem healthy - except a couple of brown leaves - and so are the toms. Just GREEN!!! Help!!! (As you can see, this is the very first time I've ever planted tomatoes in my entire life :))

What did I do wrong?

Your problem isn't due to a pest or disease, or because of anything you did wrong. If you look through some of the threads over on the main tomato forum, you'll see that as the season is winding down, many folks have the same problem.

Specifically, in your area, the cool summer weather, rains, and fogs can sometimes make it difficult to ripen tomatoes.

Would suggest you read the Tomatoes Anonymous-PNW 5 thread, and perhaps even introduce yourself.
