Oranges typically take 12 months to ripen on the tree. Perhaps they just need more time.
If the fruits have already been maturing 12 months, this could be a disease or perhaps a grafting issue. If there was a disease present, you would see other symptoms, like discoloration or mold on the surface of the fruits. If it is a grafted tree that produced good blood orange fruit previously, the rootstock could have taken over and started producing a different variety of fruit.
