The Q&A Archives: Tomatoes Not Ripening

Question: My tomato plants have fruit, but are not ripening. We have had about a month of rainy cool weather. Could this be the problem and if so, is there enough time left for them to ripen if the weather turns hotter? Or should I pull them up and hope for better weather next year?

Answer: They should ripen if the weather ever cooperates. The plants will keep going until frost, so there is no reason to rip them out yet.
