Tomsk

When I buy normal, loose vine tomatoes in Lidl, they're covered in a fine green powder that comes off on your fingers if you pick enough of them up.

I assume this is a chemical that makes green tomatoes turn red in time for their appearance on the shelves, but what is it, and is it safe?

I usually wash all fruit & veg before I eat them, but I'm just curious about this powder.
