These sure look different from the ones in my garden. Are they orange or yellow inside?

The problem I had was the fruit didn't ripen into December I think it was,and storms would knock the fruit off. The plant was hardy. Lived for years and died when I moved it and then forgot to water it regularly.
I'm now into Mangoes- lol.
