Keep those tomatoes on the counter. Even a short period of time in the refrigerator can suck the flavor our of one of summer’s favorite fruits. The coldness of the fridge also lead to undesirable mealiness. So, pick them when you are just about ready to use them or store upside-down on the counter for a few days. If you have an abundance of them, make tomato soup for those cold months of winter and stick it in the fridge, you’ll be glad you did!
