A couple of weeks ago, just before we left for a weekend in Kansas, we picked all of the tomatoes still left on our vines.  We anticipated the first hard freeze of the season, and we wanted to salvage any tomatoes that would ripen on their own.
And sure enough, a few of them have turned red and delighted us with their sweetness!

Wonderful! Mine never do that for me. I just turn them into green tomato mincemeat.
One year we had a ton of late tomatoes. Somebody told me to put a banana next to them - it gives off a gas that helps them ripen. Worked for us :D
