My cherry tomato plant is almost 6 feet tall with over 100 cherry tomatoes on it. They don't seem to want to turn red easily as I was expecting. Many have been full size for a couple weeks but haven't changed. So is it best to let them ripen on the plant or can I just take them off to ripen in a window? Really I just want to hurry up the process so I can start eating them, but they are taking too long!! The plant has all these tomatoes on it for weeks and only ONE has turned red!

Thanks. I was thinking if I took some off it might provide the plant with more energy for the ones I leave on. I guess me and my daughter will be picking some of the larger ones today. Fun!
Yes, and if your season is long enough, you might find you have the bonus of even more tomatoes.
It is only spring here and I have this many. I have a feeling I am going to need more ideas outside of spaghetti sauce for what to do with all that I will have. Still have 8 that are just starting to flower. Exciting!
Thanks I was reading conflicting articles. I think we will pick some today!
I am just too excited. I have never had a cherry tomato plant get so large or have so much on it at once, but it's like watching grass grow. Frustratingly slow! Thanks!
