    At the end of the growing season you can wrap your green tomatoes in news paper and store in a cool dark place. They will continue to ripen. Just make sure you check on them regularly.

    At the end of the season, you can cut all the foliage off the plant except where the tomatoes are connected. This "shocks" the plant and forces the tomatoes to ripen. It takes about a week after for them to all ripen at the same time.
