Is the pear ripe? Check top for softness

A ripe pear? Press the top to check for softness.

Pears ripen after they come off the tree. Press the top of the pear to see if it indents slightly; check for softness. Don’t wait until the wide part of the pear is ripe, because then the middle (and top) will be mushy.
