Pear harvest

campvAugust 27, 2013

Well I picked all the pears and I know they will need to be refrigerated for awhile. Can any one help with the procedure and time frame after picking?

All I have this date Aus.27 to pick pears and put in pantry soft take a week to ripen hard take two weeks to ripen. If leave on tree past this date you see on forum people complaining Deer got my Pears what deer does is first to ripen they pick up on that and then feed on rest if to green for them they take small bite out pear three nights later pear be eaten. You wise to pick pears today.
