slow to ripen organic heirloom tomatoes

Asked July 27, 2015, 2:45 PM EDT

Many I have talked to in kentucky and other nearby states are having trouble getting their heirloom tomatoes to ripen. Any reason for that that you know of? Any way to hurry them along, without adding chemical or poisons?

There is not many ways that you can hurry the ripening of tomatoes that are still on the vine without use of gas. You can place a mature green stage tomato in a brown paper bag and speed up the ripening process but not on the vine. Hope this helps.
