Is there a name for tomatoes that fall off before ripening?
You know how you go out to pick some tomatoes and there are already some on the ground? Often they are ripe, but sometimes they are not.
You have to pick them up and bring them in or otherwise you are just feeding the slugs. Then your partner asks you why you are picking unripe tomatoes.
I have been calling these tomatoes bycatch, after what fishermen call it when they catch things that they were not fishing for.
