In the storage of pears a reasonable criterion of success is the degree of realization of the maximum possible storage life for the variety, account being taken of seasonal and locality variations in keeping quality. Storage life is defined as the maximum period for which the fruit can be kept and still ripened satisfactorily after removal to ripening temperatures. Successful storage of pears depends on picking at the correct time, placing in storage without delay, cooling down quickly, maintenance of a uniform temperature of 29-30°F during the cool storage period, and removal of the fruit at or before the first sign of over-storage.
