The Best Ways to Store Healthy Pears

Storage Tip: Let pears sit at room temperature, near other ripening fruit or in a brown bag with a ripe banana (which stimulates ripening). Most pears don’t significantly change in color when ripe, so go by touch: ripe pears are soft when gently pressed near the stem. Store ripe pears in the coldest part of the refrigerator to prevent overripening.
