Default Blood Oranges

Anybody know when to pick them? They seem ready now. My tree is a good sized 7-8 years old and has a lot of oranges this year. They just aren't turning red inside...

FYI.... my oranges usually are ready to eat by mid to late November. I would say the oranges hit there "peek" flavor by early Dec. and start loosing quality by the end of Dec.

The peels will start to turn reddish. We don't use our blood oranges till February-April. We have about a 15 year old tree
