picking and storing
it's best to store your fresh picked apples and pears in your fridge in a plastic bag. they love humidity. i place a moist tea towel on top of them too.
unlike apples, pears will ripen after you pick them. we recommend picking pears green, before they are ripe and tucking them in your fridge. allow them to ripen at room temperature as you need them. if pears are picked ripe, they are very perishable and they become quite grainy.
