I'm starting an experiment, a local gardening guru recons you should pick any tomato the moment it shows a hint of orange. Then put them in the shed in the dark in a single layer, not touching. Apparently they ripen at the same rate but are more flavoursome and a better colour. We shall see. I found a pair of tomatoes as similar as I could and have put one in the shed and left the other on the vine.
