How can you tell when green tomatoes are ripe?

I am growing Aunt Ruby's German Green tomatoes and Emerald Evergreens. Thanks!

They get a yellow blush to the skin. They also get soft to the touch (be careful checking).

Clear skinned ones are a little harder to tell as they dont really get that yellow cast (which is the skin layer). Still touch is helpful there.

Some of the clear ones I have now also show a whitish cast to them but thats hard to tell or explain or even show in a picture. After awhile of trying you'll know. But you dont have clear skinned varieties anyway (they have yellow skins) so no worry for you.

**** When they develop an amber blush color starting usually at the blossom end and become soft to the touch.

It's perhaps best if you look at some pictures which you can do by going to tomatogrowers.com or rareseeds.com or others ( Emereld Evergreen is usually just called Evergreeen at most places) or go to Google, select IMAGES and enter the names of your tomatoes.
