What Is the Best Way to Ripen Pears?
The best way to ripen a pear is to let it sit at room temperature. You can check if it's ready by pressing on the neck or stem area. If your finger will push in some, the pear is ripe.
To ripen fresh pears, place them in a container and store them at room temperature for about a week. You can also place the pears in a brown paper bag to ripen them more quickly.
