They ripen in 5.5 to 6 months and the fruit exudes a sweet fragrance when ripe.

Actually, they are ripe and ready to pick 15 minutes before the birds show up.... Whistling

Thanks, Jean. I'll go give them a sniff - and watch for birds.

I hope that helps. I looked at a bunch of sites and there was very little info on knowing when they are ripe, but tons of info on how to peel and eat them...they must be some kinda tasty. Smiling

Yeah, but only when they are ripe, I suspect. I haven't tried one yet.
