Topsy Turvy Tomato Plant

by Robin


I have a tomato planted in the Topsy Turvy Planter. The tops of the tomatoes turn red, but the bottoms stay green. What am I doing wrong?


Hi Robin,

Review of the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter

Interesting question. I wonder, are they getting enough sun? They need the sun to get the red color in which you are referring to. Also, tomatoes actually need to ripen on the inside too. Are they still green on the inside?

If they are ripe on the inside but not red on the bottoms, you could simply place the tomato on a window sill so it would finish turning red.

If the tomato is NOT ripe on the inside, you'll need to place the tomato in a dark and warm area with a single newspaper over the top. That will allow the fruit to finish ripening on the inside.

In closing, the only thing that I can think that would keep the bottoms green, is a lack of enough sun to that area.

Hope this helps some,
