Put them in a paper bag with a very ripe banana. The banana gives off a natural gas that will ripen fruit quickly.
Alternatively, put them in a paper bag in a dark place (like a drawer) and they should be ripe in a few days.
When the tomatoes are growing remove some of the leaves so that the sun, warm air can circulate around the plant.
Keep removing the leaves not all of them because the plant needs food which comes from the leaves.
If they are in a greenhouse and they are not ripening up quick enough, hang a few overripe bananas below the plants (the ripening gases will rise and your tomatoes will ripen faster). Also removing the lower leaves from the lower third of the plant helps to speed up the ripening process.
