What is post-ripening pears?
Freshly picked pears contain a small amount of starch. When eaten in this starchy state, the texture of the pear is firm and crisp, and not too sweet, which makes it just a bad pear. However, if the fruit is left for a period of time after harvesting, this starch will be decomposed into sugars such as fructose, sucrose, and glucose, and vitamin B and C will also increase. Also, as the insoluble pectin matures, it becomes water-soluble pectin, which dissolves in water and becomes the source of thickening, giving the meat a thick and smooth texture. This series of changes is called maturation. Without this extra ripeness, pears would not be a delicious fruit.
Temperature control is important for ripening
Pears mature naturally while they are green. If they are not harvested at the best time, not only the quality and aroma of the pulp will be poor, but problems such as browning of the pulp may also occur. Post-harvest temperature control is also important; the fruit is refrigerated at around 4°C for the first 10 days, then matures at around 20°C. Please note that if the ripening temperature exceeds 30°C, the fruit will not ripen, the fruit will be damaged, the peel will not change color, the flesh will be rough, and the characteristic aroma will no longer be emitted.
If it's still hard when you buy it, put it in a paper bag or similar to keep it from drying out too much, then let it ripen indoors at around 15 to 20 degrees. If you have a lot of food, keep only what you're going to eat indoors and keep the rest in a cool place.
