These pears are the Premium pear for canning and freezing! Picked slightly green, they will ripen at room temperature in three to five days. As the color changes from light green to pale yellow, the flesh softens and the juices inside become pleasantly sweet! A good indication that the pear is ripe is when it "gives" a little when you apply pressure around the blossom end. REMEMBER-- Pears ripen from the inside out, so don't let them get too soft! We usually harvest Bartlett Pears around the 3rd to 4th week of August and they are available until the end of September.
