■ Ripen pears at room temperature. Press gently near the stem. If the neck feels soft, the pear is ready to eat.

■ Once pears are ripe, use within 3 to 5 days or refrigerate to keep them longer.

■ Wash pears under cool running water just before eating, even if you plan to peel them.

■ Peel or cut pears just before using to avoid browned flesh.

■ Asian pears: store up to 1 week at room temperature or up to 3 months in the refrigerator.
