Storage rots

Try to avoid bruising fruit, and only store pears which appears sound. Ensure there is good air circulation in the store, avoid fluctuations in temperature. Ensure that pears do not touch each other whilst in storage.  Generally pears can only be stored for up to 3 weeks.  As soon as anything shows signs of rotting, remove from the store.

There is currently no chemical control registered for this problem.
