I'm sure that there are lots of techniques, but I simply scrape out seeds and goo and place them on a paper towel in a dry location inside the house. After drying for a week or so, I move them into a baggy that gets stored in the freezer.

Yellow Pear is a OP variety, so that is good.

The store bought variety maybe a F1 hybrid. Not so good.
