Green Tomatoes AFTER frost?

October 9, 2006

I know it's highly discouraged to use tomatoes from dying vines due to the acidity issues.....

BUT, could you use green toms after a light frost if you were going to freeze them? Such as breaded for Fried Green Tomatoes?

It seems like acidity wouldn't be an issue, but are there any other problems?

I am reluctant to let the season go, but I still have lots of green toms and I'm pushing it to not have a frost soon.

I will be picking any that have started to turn tonight.

I'll toss a tarp over the plants and take my chances maybe on the green ones. Forcast is for 38 degrees in town and we are traditionally 4-8 degrees cooler. Sigh.
