To ripen pears, store them at room temperature for 2-3 days. Since these fruits become more fragile as they ripen, try to store them loosely in a bowl or on a plate.

Paul Ward and his team have been growing top fruit organically at Mole End Farm since 1994. In the last two decades they have expanded their orchards and now grow on approximately 150 acres across 4 sites in Kent (Cranbrook, Marden, Goudhurst and Chart Sutton). Mole End Farm's principal aim is to build a truly ethical and sustainable long-term business, producing high quality food in a fully sustainable manner with the absolute minimum impact on the surrounding environment. They grow at least 20 varieties of apples (including Discovery, Russet, Gala, Cox Royale, Spartan, Blaze & Bramley) and 4 varieties of pears (Conference, Comice, Williams & Josephine).
