Just Bought Roma Tomatoes-Fridge or no fridge?

I plan on using my toamtoes sat, should I leave them on the counter or in fridge?

  1. I don't refrigerate tomatoes. It runis the flavor, especially homegrown ones!

    1. We did an at home experiment last summer. Counter top tomatoes beat out the fridge toms hands down.

        1. counter. The refrigerator will make them starchy and tasteless.

          1. i feel like the fridge also adds a mealiness -- unless that's just me imagining things. unless they were going to rot because you can't use them in time, i would definitely say counter.
