Tomatoes that are allowed to ripen on the vine before they're picked are the juiciest and most flavorful; most tomatoes sold in supermarkets are actually picked before they're ripe and ripened with ethylene gas or in warming rooms. Vine-ripened tomatoes are those that are picked at the breaker stage, which occurs when they show the first signs of changing color. Tomatoes are picked at this point to ensure optimum quality by the time the fruit gets to the supermarket or your table. Tomatoes continue to ripen off the vine.
