[NAFEX] First Fruit: Cornus Mas

Today I noticed two fruits on one of my Cornus Mas.  I didn't think  
that tree even flowered, so it was a pleasant surprise.  (The other  
one had a lot of flowers.)  I ate one, and it was clearly underripe -  
hard and very sour, but not too bad.  The other one was slightly  
redder, but also hard to the touch.

How can I tell when it is ripe?

I'm tempted to just pick the fruit now, before some critter gets it,  
but it would be neat to get it to ripen.
