new house has a Pear tree....need instruction..

9 years ago

So my new house I've discovered has a pear tree in the front yard. I am in zone 7, and I have no idea what kind of pear tree it is. Most of the pears seem to be coming in on the north side of the tree. I'm not sure when they will be ready to pick, and from my understanding, they have to be picked before they ripen on the tree and have to ripen indoors. Can anyone tell me from this picture what I might have, and a course of action for picking the fruit, and taking care of the tree in general? Thanks.
