Hi Carol

I harvested my pears very early to prevent attack by insect pests. What do I do with these green, awful tasting, woody pears ?

ripen your pears in a paper bag
by: Caroline

Dear Anne

thank you for this important question. You can harvest your pear while green, in fact this is the best way to do it. Pack the green pears into a paper bag and store in a cool dark place, I use my fridge, but you may have a nice cellar. After a month or so they will ripen on their own.

regards

Caroline
