Green Zebras--when are they ripe? [Moved from Home Cooking]

Forgive me if this is the stupidest question ever posted on Chowhound, but...

I am growing Green Zebra tomatoes in my garden. They have started to come in, but I can't tell when I should pick them! Does their pretty bi-color green change a little, or do they get softer? Right now they are still kind of hard-to-firm, without that slight fullness and "squeeziness" I get from my red tomatoes when their time is nigh. I can't wait to eat them but want to make sure they are ready. I should add it's been pretty seasonable to cool here for July -- most nights have been in the 60s and sometimes even the 50s.
