Yum! They are finally ripe. How do you know when a green tomato is ready to pick? With this variety, wait until the background color is gold and they give slightly when gently squeezed. These are the best in salad, and make a beautiful caprese when alternated with gold and red tomatoes.

I picked some Green Zebras for the Tomato Tasting festival in Lake Oswego this Saturday.
