chinense Is this MustardGum NagaBrain true to type?

So, I thought this was supposed to ripen to a greenish color.. And these are in the apricot peach range.. Finally getting color in the calyx.
Flowers, pods, and leaves were all purple.. At least starting out (and with enough light)
And.. How much further should this color creep before I know they are ripe?
Any insights welcome and appreciated.

Interesting, I also grew a MustardGum NagaBrain last year that turned peachy (no calyx though).. Squeeze it to see if it gets soft, if the answer is yes, it's definitely ripe!
