Q.New house with pear tree!

Zone 02056 | ckent88 added on October 6, 2018 | Answered

I have never grown anything in a garden/tree etc so I am a total newbie to all of this. This is my first year in our new house and there is a beautiful HUGE pear tree in the backyard. I’d like to be able to take care of it properly. Without any work at all, there are already tons of pears. Does anyone have advice for me? When will I know the pears are ready to pick? I read they will not be ripe off the tree- so what is the best way to ripen them? Is there anything I can do to keep my tree healthy? Thanks in advance!
