Ripening Green Tomatoes: Although green tomatoes are great for cooking with, they’re also easy to ripen if you’d prefer to do that. The important thing to know is that unripe tomatoes will ripen if kept at a consistent 68-77°F . To ripen green tomatoes, bring them indoors and place them in a single layer at the bottom of a cardboard box. Keep them at a warm temp and out of direct sunlight, and they’ll change from green and hard to ripe and juicy in just a matter of days. It’s simple.
