sounds like botrytis :unsure:

You can cut off all the foliage that has brown or grey markings on, and the bad fruit, obviously. This might give enough time for the rest of the toms to ripen on the plants.

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

Mine's definitely got a bit of botrytis here and there - I just chop the affected bits off and the rest of the plant seems to do ok ;)

If they are of a good size (for the variety) and have started to turn colour as you suggest you should be able to ripen them OK in a warm place indoors.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older
