Asian pears picked GREEN? Fuyu?
Hello folks :)
A very well-intentioned person just gave me about 40 pounds of asian pears picked very, very green. I am not talking slightly underrripe, here. And a bunch of fuyu-type persimmons, same deal.
Is there any way to get these to ripen? I have not had asian pears ripen off the tree in the past... but maybe there is a technique I do not know? I did a search of this forum but did not turn up anything.
She does not know the variety, but the pears are brown-skinned and, to me, taste like Hosui. (She also gave me a few almost-ripe ones, is how I know.)
Thanks for your help -- or any suggestions for what to do with green pears and persimmons :).
