The eastern peaches are in the grocery store now, and they are juicy and delicious. When I get them, they are hard so I put them in a paper bag and close it with a clothes pin. In a couple of days, they are soft and ready to eat.

Whenever I get store bought peaches, they are rock hard. I put them in a brown paper bag to ripen, but it takes days (it seems like forever) to get them ripe enough to eat. Is there a faster, better way to ripen them quickly?
Thanks for all responses!
Add an apple to the bag. Apples release ethylene gas which ripen other fruits quickly. I do this to ripen other fruit like avocados and plums and nectarines, too.
