Recipes
Proper Storage

Your tomatoes are best stored on the Kitchen counter.  We recommend placing them stem side down on a paper towel in a bowl, so that should any become ripe and leak, it is contained.  HOWEVER, Ripe tomatoes can be stored in your refrigerator to slow the ripening to expand their life a bit.

One thing to note is that tomatoes give off ethylene gas, which causes other fruits and vegetables in your refrigerator to ripen much faster and significantly shortening their shelf life.
