Will hips ripen indoors?

I have several hips on plants (container) that have not ripened. It's getting to be frost time in the north east and so I brought the plants in to my basement. I have grow lights and the temperature in the basement is between 55 and 60 F. Will the hips still ripen?

If they are 100 days old or close to it then they are mature enough to harvest. Otherwise yes. Leave the lights on 24/7.
What doesn't kill them makes them stronger.
