Well, it depends on the condition of the tomato. Fresh tomatoes will start to deteriorate a few days after being left on a shelf. Make sure the lid on a canned tomato is completely sealed. Tomatoes are perishable. That is, their lifespan is short and they will parish very quickly. Store them in a cool place with no humidity, and they will last longer.
