PEAR RIPENING 101

1

Your Pears Are Prepped

The pears you receive were carefully kept at the perfect cool temperature to develop their sugars for the sweetest and creamiest pears you’ve ever tasted.
2

Speed It Up

Pears ripen best between 65 and 75°F. Put pears in a paper bag or an enclosed area with a banana or ripe apple to ripen them quicker.
3

Slow It Down

Want to save your pears for later? Slow down their ripening and store them in the fridge.
4

The Thumb Test

Check the neck! Press your thumb on the stem-end of the pear. If it yields to pressure, it’s ready to eat.
5

No Pear Left Behind

Have a pear too overripe to eat? It can be just as tasty in a pear pie, smoothie, fruit salsa, or pear butter.
