Can oranges get sweeter as they get older??

Just wondering.
I had a bag of them in the fridge in a plastic bag in the crisper for several weeks.
When I got back from a trip, they seemed to be a lot sweeter than they were when originally purchased.
Is it just that they lost some water and got more "concentrated", or can they actually ripen somehow, like a banana, despite the cold environment?
