I was amazed how quicjly tomatoes ripen indoors. I had a glut of unripened cherry tomatoes a few years ago (having sowed seed for the first time and not expecting many to germinate, I sowed the whole packet.... ) I picked them thinking I might get round to making some green tomato chutney.  By the time I did most were red.  Having just been left in an open plastic tub on the worktop.
