unlike apples, pears will ripen after you pick them. we recommend picking pears green, tucking them in your fridge and letting them ripen at room temperature as you need them. if pears are picked ripe, although delicious, they are very perishable and they become quite grainy.
it’s best to store your fresh picked
apples and pears in your fridge in a plastic bag. they love humidity.
