Always keep tomatoes in the fridge as they do seem to keep longer. As to the taste, haven't noticed a substantial difference other than the cold and that's sort by letting the one you want be brought up to room temp before consuming.

We get sold shocking tomatoes here.

never in the fridge, unless they've been sliced from..... The Farmers told me not to. I keep 'em in Grandma's old chopping bowl. They look so pretty on the kitchen table.

To begin with I hate tomatoes in MN. They taste like plastic. If left in fridge they taste even worse. I keep them on the counter. During the growing season I just go outside and pick one from the bush.

Well, if you can pick your own, of course THAT is the optimum! I only buy tomatoes in the months when our Jersey tomatoes are the toast of the USA, and only from the farmers. Somehow they don't seem to last long enough to worry about needing to refrigerate.

For how easy it is to grow tomatoes, I'm surprised at the prices they command.

Avocados are another item I don't get the pricing about.
I live in Southern California, the Avocado growing capitol.
Yet, I go to my local supermarket and see avocados with a sticker..."product of Chile."

Another thing...I asked my major chain store produce guy what they do with the $1.49 avocados when they don't sell. "We throw them away and they get turned into compost."

So rediculous.
