is this a good eating pear?
brook on Apr 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fruit does still need to be ripened off the tree like other European type pears, but it retains its apple-like crunch. The best way to tell if it's ready to eat after picking and ripening off the tree is to squeeze it gently near the "shoulder" of the fruit and when it gives slightly, it's ready. The flavor improves as it ripens and would probably not be as good if the fruit is eaten right off the tree.
