I have put mine on a warm windowsill or on the shelf in the greenhouse. Hopefully someone else will come up with better ideas.

Not tried it but read that to ripen green tomatoes put a banana in with them. It is know to work with apples so worth trying.

We used to wrap them in newspaper in a box. They were outdoor grown, so often proved to have potato blight, and rotted before ripening.

I've just put the one's I harvested from my balcony in a bowl with some ripe ones to give them an idea of how they should look.
