Are green tomato's inedible un-rippened fruit or an altogether different variety of tomato?
They are unrippened fruit, they ain't inedible, use them for
making chutney, or use them in other forms of cooking.
They are unripe fruit. You can slice, bread and fry them to make friend green tomatoes. Tomatillos are edible but look like a little green tomato in a husk.
Fried Green Tomatoes are really tasty... I like to bread & fry the ones that are just starting to change their color, the best, but the plain green ones work well. This year, I favored the Green Roma Tomatoes for doing such things, and even wrote a Hub about it a while back; check it out... http://insanemundane.hubpages.com/hub/F … a-Tomatoes
They are wonderful fried with red sweet tomato relish. You can also use them in chutney. Great stuff!
They're regular old tomatoes that haven't ripened and turned red yet. However, they're very much edible; fried green tomatoes is a very popular dish.
Unripened, green tomatoes are not to be confused with tomatillos which look similar but are a different fruit altogether.
Ahhh....the wonderful green tomato! Though there are tomatios, which are green and used in lot of Spanish and Italian dishes, it is the regular red tomato before it ripens that is the delicious green tomato. Not only can you use these green tomatoes in chutney and fired with eggs and crackers, but it is awesome mixed with apples in an apple pie. They taste sweet and fruity and are certainly edible!
Depends. There are varieties of tomatoes which can (or should) be eaten green, and varieties in which green would simply indicate not yet ripe. At least that's what I've always thought. Doesn't mean I'm right!
Ohio is a tomato state, but so are others - like California. We love red tomatoes, even rich black types, but enjoy green ones while thinking they are less healthy than their ripe siblings. Not so! read more
