[NAFEX] Why pick less than ripe Ure Pears?

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.
