How long can they stay on the vine?
Sorry guys, I'm just not putting the search string together correctly if this question has been asked here before (actually, I couldn't get it through a Google web search either).
I am growing Ferry and Morse Beefmaster Hybrids that I grew from seed, starting back in February and transplanted in March. I have tomatoes starting to ripen (turn all red) ... thus the question;
Once the tomato ripens (all the green is gone) on the vine, how long before you HAVE to pick it? I don't want to pick it before I use it, but I don't want it to rot on the vine either.
