The best place to store ripe tomatoes…..

If you don’t have a wine fridge or cool cellar, store all ripe tomatoes that you can’t eat within the first day in the refrigerator. If you’re storing tomatoes in the refrigerator, it may be better to locate them on a top shelf near the door, which is often warmer than the bottom and back of the fridge.
