Pears

Pears

In Season: Available in late summer and autumn, and in some areas, into the winter months Pears have always been appreciated for their sweet flavor and velvety texture. In the 1800s, the Bartlett pear was quite popular, but so rare that enthusiasts paid the equivalent of $20.67 just for one fruit! Thankfully, pears are much more plentiful today and are available in several varieties, including Anjou, Bartlett, Red Bartlett, and Bosc. When it comes to picking a ripe pear, not all varieties feature the telltale turning of colors. Ready to eat pears will be slightly soft to the touch. For more information, please visit:
