[NAFEX] Why pick less than ripe Ure Pears?

Jim,

You have to remember that there are always exceptions to the rule.  I have a variety called Sirrine that I have picked directly off the tree and eaten but usually the idea about picking them before they are completely ripe is best.  Don't knock whatever works.

      Following someone's post about picking pears before they get tree 
  ripened and putting them in cold storage, I picked my Ure Pears when they 
  first began changing color.  Apparently I missed some and they fell off the 
  tree two weeks later.  Wishing to learn how tree-ripening affected stone 
  cell production, I bit into several finding they are the best tasting pears 
  I have ever eaten.  There was an acceptable, tiny bit of grit in the peel 
  but the flesh was wonderful.  Henceforth I'll let them ripen on the tree.
