You can try putting them in a paper bag with an unripe banana. As the banana ripens it will release ethelyene gas and that may help the peaches ripen.  Don't allow the banana to get rotten!

We had a big wind storm and a branch broke off....we are watching them.......not going to be as big as the ones still on the tree but as soon as the bees start to sting them we will take them off and let them sit on the porch to ripen.  If you don't want them all to ripe at the same time you can put them unwashed in the refrigerator.
