HELLPP!!

My tomatoes still havnt turned red. they've this colour for some time now.  They are in the pollytunnel, and have a tomorite feed every Sunday.

My granddad told me to try a banana underneath the plant but still nothing has happened.

Any ideas?

Thanks

What variety are they?
Have they changed from their original green colour at all?
If they have gone yellow or orange, have they softened at all?

No idea on the variety, they were given to us from a plot neighbour, they have just turned a slightly different colour green.

There isn't anything wrong.  They just need more time to ripen.

They go from dark green to light green, then you start seeing some red  :)

Do not remove anymore leaves, generally only the ones below the 1st fruit are removed

Go on holiday and when you come back there will be a glut. Never fails for me.

No leaves removed above first Truss.

They're all starting to turn now. Had my first plum tom yesterday and it was delicious!

Looks like i'm just impatient.

Thank you all for the advice,

Ches
