Did not ripen

I have had these pears for 2 weeks now and they are still hard and crunchy - not lovely and juicy like a pear should be! Also, the ones delivered to me were red, not green as advertised.

Mushy & bad when they arrived

These were mushy from day 1 with a couple of the pears being bad from the inside. Would not recommend.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Fabulous pears

These always arrive unripe and if eaten straight away then I can see why people would think they are horrible. We too let them ripen naturally on the windowsill or in the greenhouse and in a few days they are perfection. Particularly good for making babies first foods!

Blackened and bruised

I used to purchase these regularly but for the last two weeks they have arrived in a state that's clearly inedible - why is blackened fruit being sent out to customers? Poor work, Ocado.

Some folks just don't know 'bout pears

Folks, if your pears arrive hard/green/tasteless, don't bin them, give them to the dogs, try to boil them, or whatever. Just remove the plastic film and place the tray on a windowsill, where they can get a little sun. In a day or two, they will be perfectly ripe. They pick them a bit early, so that they survive transportation without becoming all bruised. I've never had a problem with these pears. The are consistently delicious, if you know how to let them ripen.

Poached Pears with Warm Coffee Sauce

This is a dessert that can be prepared up to two days before serving - a winner for midweek entertaining. Poach your pears and make the caramel sauce ahead, but warm both before serving.
