Tomatoes not turning red?

lata3, Jan 6, 4:00am
Hi all, i have planted a tomatoe plant(s) for the first time and it is huge, it has lots of massive tomatoes, but they have'nt turned red! Is there something wrong! I fertilise them once a week and water every night. . The fruit have been there for about a month to just under a month.

As above, be patient, my tomato plants are loaded with fruit, can't wait till they are ready but you can't rush it, it will happen.

Oh awesome thanks guys, i was worried there was something missing or something else i had to do to turn them red!

Hard to be patient when there is lots of fruit on the plant isn't it!I found a variety which will start producing ripe fruit before Xmas - it's called Gold Nugget - a yellow cherry tomato that's super yummy.

What type of tomato!. Some only turn orange or yellow. Are they in shade! Red change with ripeness = sun and length of daylight

A bit of red acrylic paint should do the trick! Like in Alice in Wonderland, with the queen of hearts painting her white roses red.

You fertilise every week!! You shouldn't have to. I prepared the garden mine are in, planted out and that was it, just some watering since.
They will ripen when ready, once they start then next thing you know, you have loads, but give them time.
And I'd stop feeding them now.

some ash out of the fire place sprinkled around the base helps them colour up too
