Regardless of when your growing season comes to a close, gardeners the world over face this burning question: when should I pick my green tomatoes?
Be picky about how you answer this question.
The natural temptation at the end of the season is to pull your plants. But think before you start yanking. If you have a considerable number of green tomatoes still on the vine and the forecast does not include a heavy frost, resist the temptation. Instead, take steps to move along the ripening process for those fruits.
On the other hand, there are certain conditions in which you should definitely harvest green tomatoes on the vine.
