    Is anyone else finding that in spite of the sunshine, their tomatoes are very slow to ripen? We are in North Yorkshire.

    Yep – same in Manchester – suppose we just have to be patient 🙂

    The same down here in Essex, even though they are in a greenhouse I have not fared any better but hoping they taste even better for having to wait 😁

    Mine have just started to ripen now and I’ve had a few of my yellow pear tomatoes ripen. They taste amazing

    Hi yes mine are taking ages to ripen, I thought the sun would have speeded it up but seems to have done the opposite, to mine at least. Hopefully they wont take too much longer!

    Mine too but they have grown massive!
    Both the plant (which has taken over my patch, killing off some of my other crops) and the tomatoes themselves!

    mine are in a poly tunnel and are still slow ripening, runner beans have just starting doing good now it’s cooler, only thing that has done well in the sun are marrows, having a bumper crop of those

    Mine are taking an eternity too! Any ideas on how best to ripen them? I don’t have a greenhouse.

    I brought some of my bunches in and placed them on a plate in the heat. That redeemed them

    hi @moominator23 – what heat – was it just a sunny windowsill? Please let me know I’m really getting fed up waiting for my tomatoes to ripen

    Marty boy- heat in the kitchen and poss a sunny windowsill. I’m in Bolton so I’ve had my heating on lots lately as it’s been freezing and raining. Just brought my chilli plants in now too to give them some warmth

    Thanks @moominator23
    I can’t really bring mine inside – they are planted inside my greenhouse – maybe I’ll put a heater in the greenhouse
