Session Three Harvesting Card

Harvesting your Tomato plants

  1. Tomatoes are small round fruits which grow on vines (or sometimes called tresses) on the tomato plant above the ground

  2. When the tomatoes first grow they are green, we know they are ready for harvesting when they have become red all over

  3. Pick the ripe fruits as soon as possible to encourage the ripening of the other tomatoes

  4. You can pick individual tomatoes off the plant or cut the whole vine off
