Romas really slow to turn red (not orange)?

I'm finding that I need to pick my romas a bit early, since I have animals that like to chew on them. Plus, they seem to fall to the ground very quickly when they begin to ripen.
Do you find that you end up eating/freezing/canning them when they are still mostly orangish-red and still a bit firm?

No because just like any other variety they will ripen indoors if left undisturbed. So there is no need for under-ripe eating or canning.

Picking tomatoes at breaker stage and ripening inside rather than leaving them on vine and the many advantages to doing that is often discussed here.
