You can't tell any citrus fruit being ripe by it's color...some oranges even turn orange before they are ripe and turn yellowy green when they are perfect.

Also, as they have no starch in them, they won't ripen after they are picked...they may change color but the taste won't change for the better...unlike Aligator Pears who if you sick in a paper sack get nice.

Funny how oranges as fruit are called the same as the color in most languges, but Limes are not "greens", and lemons are not "yellos"

In fact...it's a funny thing that Citrus itself was named because of an accident. (Kinda like America being named after a map maker who claimed to discover it but was never here)
