When to Pick Pears

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:01pm

picking-pears When is the right time to pick pears?

Pears should never be allowed to ripen on the tree because:

  • they become gritty.
  • the area around the core turns brown, soft and mushy.

Pears ripen best off the tree.

Pick pears when they are:

  • firm - but the flesh is very slightly springy.
  • just turning yellowish green. If too green they will never get their best flavor.
  • just turning the seeds brown.
  • ready to come away from the tree with a slight twist & lift. If the fruit does not come off easily, the pears are not ready to pick.
