Should ripening tomatoes be in direct sunlight? i have heard different answres here - one side saying yes, the other saying sun scrtch will occur. I have also heard of people picking before ripe and allowing the tomatoes to ripen on the shelf or in a brown bag. What is best? Any thoughts?
Further, aand this may sound dumb, but I want these tomatoes to be perfect. When is a tomato ripe on the vine? I have a blackbrandywine that is almost entirely red and just barely soft to the touch, but still firm. Should I pick it?
Thanks for the advice,
