how do i get my pears to ripen please and i have had cranberry plants for four years and never had any fruit what is the reason thanks from keith



I don't know about your pears, perhaps its due to unseasonal weather. As for cranberries they grow in watery bogs in America and I'm not sure if they produce fruit in normal garden conditions.

What kind of pear is it, Keith? Some of the Asian pear hybrids, such as 'Kieffer', never get soft, so the fruit must be sliced thinly or cooked to be eaten. Other pears can be ripened indoors in a brown paper bag, faster with an apple included, but you need to check frequently!
