Little Pear Who Could
— Available October through June
Firm and green, even
when ripe; this large, thin-skinned yellowish-green pear is best
eaten fresh. When slightly under-ripe, it can be baked or
poached, but once it ripens, its sweet, mellow flavor and
abundant juice make it an excellent choice for salads and snacks.
Anjou — Available
October through May
Much the same flavor, use and texture as
the green Anjou. Red Anjous (generally dark, maroon red in color)
show little to no change in color as they ripen, which is another
characteristic shared with their Green Anjou counterparts. Red
Anjous are recognizable for their near egg-shaped appearance.
