Ripening

Ripening

How long does it generally take for fully formed peppers to ripen? I have some chili pepper plants (mariachi) that are all being weighed down by big, very very pale green/yellow peppers. They don't show any signs of ripening into bright yellow or red. The plants are starting to get weighed down and slanted, so I was thinking maybe I should pick some now? Also, I have some sweet pepper plants (godfather) with some big green peppers on them, which also aren't showing any signs of turning red. Does it generally take a long while? Seems like both plants have had full grown peppers for over a month. EDIT: mods, I can't seem to get rid of the erroneous artichoke tag!
