Can you recommend a ripening method for pears?


Q. Is there a way to ripen pears quicker? When I buy them from the grocery store they are so hard.


A. Pears ripen best when kept at room temperature.  Watch this quick video on ripening pears at home.  You can also ‘check the neck’ of a pear to see if it is ripe. For additional fruit and veggie storage tips, check out our storage chart.
