It may have been better to not subject you to my gnasher imprints but on the other hand, I think it demonstrates the ready-to-eat ripeness and juiciness of a perfect pear.

I haven’t yet got to the stage where I know when every pear is ready to come off the tree and into the kitchen to finish ripening, but when everything is in alignment – this is the result


That was Beth and here is Sensation, still doing it’s ripening thing on the tree (but was eaten last week) It’s still a relatively young tree, and only produced the one perfectly formed and juicy fruit.
