      I thought it would make good bragging rights to get to Christmas. To be honest they should have been picked 3 weeks ago as the plants are completely dead and the fruit aren't going to get any bigger. About 50% of them will ripen hopefully although they have lost their taste.

        @JWK over here we use brown paper bags to ripen the green ones. Of course that usually happens in October here. And the best bags to use are the nice thick ones from the liquor store...:whistle:

          I'm only growing one packet of sweet million, it's a cherry tomato and doesn't get blight, they ripen well here the large ones take too long to.

              I'm sure that they do, liliana, and I think that members of the GC Gang possibly still do.:dunno:
