A question about a recipe: Fried Green Tomatoes with Panko and Parmesan

071911_271

I have a question about the recipe "Fried Green Tomatoes with Panko and Parmesan" from amanda. Why is this southern classic used with only green tomatoes. Can it be made with red? Is it because of the tartness you noted in your cooking notes. I'm not such a fan of green tomatoes. just curious.

Green tomatoes are fairly inedible when raw, so cooking them this way transforms them. Also, they hold up to sauteing and crisping much better than a red tomato would.
