There is a world of difference between vine-ripened and force-ripened tomatoes. The vine-ripened variety has a wonderful smell when you pop off the green cap, and the flavor is far superior. The latter often taste like sawdust.

They can tossed around with little damage. There would be tomato sauce in the vine-ripened tomato bin if they were treated that way!
