Wallace tomato plant

Asked July 16, 2015, 11:27 AM EDT

I bought a couple of "Wallace Tomatoe" plants at a local green house. What are they supposed to look like when ripe? Right now they are a variegated green with ridges.

I am not familiar with 'Wallace' tomato. If it is an heirloom, the fruit probably will be red or pink when fully ripe. One can judge ripeness by fruit firmness as well as by color. When the fruit begins to soften, the tomato is ready to harvest, regardless of fruit color.
