“Green is no, yellow is wait, red is go. Tomatoes work the opposite than street lights”

For traffic lights, “red” means “stop” and “green” means “go.” For tomatoes, “red” means “go—ready to eat” and “green” means “stop—not ready to eat.”

“Green is no, yellow is wait, red is go. Tomatoes work the opposite than street lights” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on October 7, 2017.
