They are probably ready, if unripe will have a distinctly greenish tint.<br><br>
They taste much better if you keep them in the refrigerator for awhile first. They have the consistency of watermelon - extremely crisp but almost 100% water.<br><br>
Their Japanese name is Nashi, I learned to love them there.

You should peel them -- the peel is kind of tough.<br><br>
My wife is Korean by birth and introduced me to these. They are really popular there.

I personally think they pretty much always taste gross. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad">

I have one I got yesterday at Whole Foods sitting on my counter right now! Might be a great mid-morning snack!<br><br>
Just for reference, I had my first one (and only one) a few weeks ago. It was slightly sweet, crispy and juicy. No mealy-ness of typical pears and definitely not sour. It was delicious!
