I have 8 good sized melons in the greenhouse that are just short of being ripe. Is there any way of forcing this in much the same way that tomatoes left on a sunny internal window cill will ripen.

I have used both bananas and apples to help ripen other fruits. But I don't know how you'd go about that in a greenhouse.

Then again would you want them ripening all at the same time?

Yep I'm going to have a melon fest. I'll bring in two tomorrow, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
