A semi-ripe peach placed in a closed-up brown paper bag will usually ripen within a day or so. Keep the peaches in this kind of dry, dark environment and check on them periodically. If you want to slow the ripening on some of them, refrigerate them and do the paper bag routine when you're ready. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/peach/peach-tree-harvesting.htm
