Put them in a paper bag with a ripe banana. The banana gives off ethylene gas which will ripen the pear. Ideally pears should be left on the tree until ripe.

Ripen cut cantaloupe

Not once it is cut. To test before cutting press the ends or smell the fruit, it should smell sweet. To ripen. put in a paper bag with a ripe banana as they give off ethylene gas which is a ripener. Also works on tomatoes.
