PEAR 'BEURRE BOSC'

PEAR 'BEURRE BOSC'

Pyrus communis
Member $29.95
Non-Member $36.95
An 1807 Belgian heirloom, this is the quintessential fresh eating pear that melts in your mouth like sorbet. The best flavour comes when ripened at room temperature, so supermarket offerings are not a patch on home ripened fruit. Elegant elongated russet-brown pears with rich sweet slightly grainy flesh to enjoy fresh, baked or poached. A late season crop, which is pollinated by ‘Red Beurre D’Anjou’, ‘Williams’ and ‘Red Williams’.
