How to Pick Fresh Tomatoes
If you want to pick tomatoes that stay fresh and flavorful for longer, look for a few key characteristics including color, texture, consistency, sizes and varieties, and packaging quality. Greenhouse grown tomatoes are picked right before shipping to your local produce aisle, meaning you can find fresh tomatoes near you in every season.

Select tomatoes that are firm – not soft, but not hard either.
