Description & storage
Pear: sweet juicy yellow or green fruit with a rounded shape that becomes narrower towards the stalk.
Pears are picked when they are almost ripe. The fruit has to come off if you lift the fruit vertically.
The late races can be kept for months at a dark place.
Pears ripen best at room temperature. If you want too keep them a few days you have to keep them in a dark and cold place.
A pear tree can grow upto 20 m. high. Therefore most pears are grafted on a quince stem so they stay smaller.
