They don’t appear to have been pollinated (which is normal), so there isn’t really anything to mature, they will be seedless, but also pulpless, essentially just skin with perhaps a thin pithy placenta in the center where the seeds would have grown from. You might as well as just leave it as long as you can to enjoy it on the plant, perhaps if you can time it right before the first frost you can cut them and bring them in to experience the disappointment first hand. They should still “ripen”, and you can eat the placenta, but it will be far from a pleasant fruit-eating experience.
