    • Yes, they are, and more! With some water and sunshine tomato plants are prolific. Some of them I left on their truss to ripen in the laundry – we ate those ripe and red. It’s amazing how many green tomatoes will ripen off the plant. If you have a garage, you can pull out the whole plant and hang it in there with all its green tomatoes still on and the tomatoes will almost all ripen given some time. Or you can use them green like this.
