pear tree

United Kingdom Gb

tree is 7 yrs old and this is the first time their has been pears on it when is the write time to pick them and how do thay ripeing thank you ian from edinburgh



Hold the pear and lift upwards so it is almost upside down, if the pear is ripe it will snap off. If you want some to ripen indoors (which a lot of varieties will do) put them in a bowl at room temp with a ripe banana. You can stew half ripe pears in red wine and cinnamon, in the oven, mmmm..
