Kieffer pears

I am still trying to figure out the proper time to pick these Kieffer pears. I've heard in passing that since these pears are of an Asian variety, they can ripen on the tree. However, Stark Bro's recommends picking them while still firm and then allowing them to ripen indoors. (The site also says they should be ready by mid-October in Zone 5.)

I plan on picking one today to see how long it takes to ripen indoors.

They look pretty, don't they?
