"It seems that pears don't in fact ripen on the tree!"
How interesting hypercharleyfarley!!
I never knew that. I've been trying to squeeze the pears on my tree for weeks and weeks now, waiting for them to soften up so I can pick and scoff them, so this explains why they're all still hard as rocks !!!
I'll see if I can gently twist some off, as have had my eye on about half a dozen nice blushed ones, not sure of the variety, I thought Williams, but not sure. Then I will put to the side with a banana for company and then scoff.
