Pears, which ripen quickly, may lose 3 - 4 pounds before they become overripe. However, if kept in cold stores at 0°C, they may still exhibit hardness values of 9 - 10 pounds even after several months.
A characteristic feature of pears is their rapid transition from the ripe to the overripe stage. Thus, whenever a cargo of pears is unloaded in the ripe state, large losses are sure to ensue, since within a few days they will be overripe and will lose market value. For this reason, great care must be taken when inspecting cargo that no pears are loaded whose degree of hardness differs substantially from that indicated above. A difference of around 1 pound is tolerated.
The pears must be firm, clean, free of mold and foreign odors or flavors, have a good color and contain as few stone cells as possible.
Pears are wrapped individually in tissue paper to reduce susceptibility to pressure and impact. They are transported in crates, tubs and cartons. The packaging must allow air circulation for refrigeration purposes.
Pears from Brazil are wrapped in sulfate paper to protect them from light.
