When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Jelly Bean Red & Yellow tomatoes are at the peak of sun-ripened deliciousness when either bright red, or yellow, and have a slight give when gently squeezed.

Tomatoes may also be picked at the “first blush” stage, when colors just begin to change, and ripened at room temperature without decreasing flavor or nutrition. Picking often and early increases yield, and decreases the risk of cracking and pest damage.

At the end of the season, about 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of unripe tomatoes near the end of the season and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
