Storing your tomatoes with the stem-end down at room temperature can greatly extend their shelf life. The area on the top of the tomato where the stem once grew provides an escape for moisture and an entry point for bacteria. You can test this by taping the top of the tomato and placing it next to a normal one - you'll see the difference. This could make for a great science experiment... or an extra delicious salad! ;)
