harvesting luffas

Greenville, SC(Zone 7b)

I just found this site today! This is great!
This is my first year growning luffas. I have about 7 that are almost 3 ft long. When can I pick them -or- do I have to leave them on the vine until frost. Here in SC that could be in Nov. I like to clean up my beds before it gets cold,so bugs dont overwinter in the soil.
Thank you for any help!
