More Proof that Green Tomatoes Will Ripen

More Proof Green Tomatoes Will Ripen

I bought these green tomatoes to paint, not eat, because I liked their spidery-looking leaves and their glossy green skins.  
But I had to go away on a trip, and left them sitting in my studio.  
A week later, when I returned, they were no longer green!  I was wishing I had painted them before I left.
And here they are a week later.  Almost completely red and ripe.

They should be ready to eat soon!

So, I'd say, don't compost all of your green tomatoes, bring some inside and let them ripen slowly.

It takes about 3 weeks.
