They either turn yellow on the vine or if your season is short, pick them before ff and keep them in a cool room and they should ripen slowly on their own.

The stem will turn tan/brown and dry out.

As to picking early, I had one fall of the vine quite early and unripe last year. It was quite immature, but I left it out in the sun for a while then brought it in and let it finish ripening in the house. It did and tasted just fine!
