Ripening Tips

  • Ripening: Want to ripen your Organic Starkrimson Red Pear to a smooth, juicy-sweet texture? Place it on your counter at room temperature to allow it to soften. Starkrimsons, like Bartletts, are one of the few pear varieties to change color as they ripen. The skin turns a brighter shade of red and the skin becomes more tender and thin.
  • Not ready to eat your ripened pear? Put it in the fridge; it’ll stay in its ripened state for up to a week.
