Default Bottling pears

Having a lot of pears this year I thought I would bottle them. However I
am not certain if they should be fully ripe or under ripe. Can anyone
help please?

My neighbour who does it says firm, not underripe or overripe.

I bottle pears every year, and the best results are from slightly
underripe firm pears. However as long as the pears are not over ripe,
they bottle ok, wet oven bottling tends to make them soggy, but the taste
is fine.
