Pear seasoning

Just had a delivery of pear logs to split and season, looking online I can only find mainly American sites where they say the seasoning time is 6-9 months. If I split it into reasonably small pieces is this time scale realistic?

my rule of thumb is t split it as soon as I can and then it gets the best chance to dry. Speed all depends on the environment it is dried in, a good hot summer and stacked where the wind catches it and it will be good, a long wet summer and stacked between the shed and garage where no wind gets, then no chance.

spent most of today splitting some up, it actually splits quite well so I could easily split it into small pieces but is quite dense compared with the softwood I have, just need a good summer now I guess.

This wood seasoning thing is just common sense really . Longer the better  , keep dry , wind, and some sun  if possible . At the end of the day if you are cold you godda burn what you got .
