How to harvest your cherry tomatoes
Your tomatoes will be ready to pick off the vines 60-85 days. The fruit should be bright red and pluck off the vine easily. Fruit will ripen off the plant, too. If your tomato is carrying too much fruit and it seems like the stems will snap, harvest semi-ripe fruit, and keep it inside out of direct sunlight. Excess tomatoes can be oven roasted, made into a salsa or pasta sauce.
