I want to see red rather than green; TRICKS of the TRADE.

Byline: Adrienne Wild

Q MOST of my glasshouse tomatoes are still hard and green. Which is the best way to ripen them? - Ben Tyler, Colchester, Essex

A ADRIENNE SAYS: If the temperature is too high ripening can be delayed, so keep an eye on ventilation. Later in the season remove excess leaves to allow sun to reach the fruits. Any green fruits at the end of the season can be packed in kitchen paper and put in a dark place to ripen, or hang a banana in the plant's branches to speed reddening.
