Q and A: canning unripe pears and canning zucchini pickles — 3 Comments

  1. Judith, whether or not they will ripen probably depends on what variety they are. Some pears never tree ripen, and have to be in cold storage for several months then brought to a cool indoor temp for several weeks to be edible. I’d suggest that you Google the variety and see what the recommendations are for ripening and for using unripe fruit. I’d think you’ll find all kinds of uses for your unripe pears. Most pear trees I’ve worked with have extremely brittle branch wood
