I didn't find any S. habrochaites seedlings in the area where it grew last summer.
A lot of S. peruvianum seedlings volunteered this spring.

Lastly the green when ripe, yellow wen ripe, pale yellow when ripe, pink when ripe, and orange when ripe tomatoes in my garden this year- if it changes color it's getting ripe. This might be pale green to dark green. However the true test with tomatoes for me is to give that fruit a gentle little squeeze. If it's soft it's ripe.
