Keep your tomatoes out of the fridge for best taste

Intriguing. According to a researcher at the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service’s Citrus and Subtropical Products Research Laboratory, refridgerating tomatoes seems to degrade their flavor.

I love tomatoes, but doubt my tomatoes would last long enough for my usual period of time of having them around.  I wonder whether modifying the hot water/air technique for berries, as tested by NYTime Harold McGee, would work for prolonging the life of tomatoes outside of the fridge.
