Pear harvest Timing

Asked August 22, 2018, 11:19 PM EDT

I’m trying to get better about timing the picking of my pears. So far I haven’t ended up with an edible one yet. I’ve attached a picture of how they look now. Here are 2 examples from my Luscious Tree as of this AM. They are still very hard on the tree. I picked 2 and put in a brown paper bag and see no signs of ripening after 4 days. I’m in the Twin Cities area. Any tips?
