Can i just check on whether toms will ripen quicker indoors or outdoors at this time of year? more out of laziness, i've still got my plants out in pots in the garden. Have had a fair few, although the black russians only just starting to go (brown!) now.
Completely understand they're ripenened by the warmth... but... my youngest occasionally (and annoyingly) grabs a green one, which I then bring inside. Yet the ones inside seem to be ripening more slowly than the ones still on the plants?? Maybe just coincidence and our child has a habit of grabbing the least ripe ones?
Should say, am in SE England and on average temps are about 17C by day, 8C by night.
