Is 'ripe' also used as a verb?

I came across a sentence in which 'rich' is used as a verb( When do the fruits ripe?).I think it is not used as a verb, ripen.Is it not always used as adjective?
Thank you

    I've never seen that: the verb is always 'ripen'. Where did you see that? Are you sure it was by a native speaker?
