Question: 

How do I ripen pears?

Answer: 

Pears should be ripened indoors at a temperature of 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.  The ripening process should take seven to ten days.  To speed up ripening, place the pears in a tightly sealed paper bag.  The fruit give off ethylene gas, which accumulates in the bag and promotes ripening.
