Varieties we grow and love:
- Bartlett – bright green, rounded, great for fresh eating, wonderful to cook with
- Red Bartlett – the red-blushed variety of Bartlett
- Bosc – firm eating, lovely poached
As always, fresh produce is most delicious and nutritious when consumed as close to the harvest date as possible.
Pears will keep for a LONG time in the fridge, especially if not fully ripe. With high humidity and in the coldest part of your fridge, Bartletts will store for 3 months, Boscs will keep for 3-5 months!!!
Keep on the counter or in paper bag on the counter for 1-5 days to ripen.
– can be enjoyed in:
- fresh, in season
- tarts, pies
- sauteed on ice cream or with sausages for brunch
Tips for preparing:
Pears peel easily with a regular peeler, halve and use a melon baller to remove seed cavity with perfection
