I came across this beautiful illustration from Belgium in our archives. What a great reminder that USA Red and Green Anjou Pears are still in season! Both Anjou varieties are sweet, juicy, and delicious! They’re also very versatile: you can eat them out-of-hand (for me personally, a sliced Anjou is a great addition to my lunch on a daily basis), in salads, as part of an entree, or dessert. The recipe section at www.usapears.org has great options. And because the Anjou pear doesn’t change color, remember to Check the Neck for ripeness!
I work with USA Pear marketing offices that work in 38 countries all over the world: from Latin America to the Middle East, from Europe to Southeast Asia and places in between, our representatives serve markets on every continent except Antarctica. I love the opportunity to practice my Spanish and pick up new phrases in other languages (even if it’s just the basics of “hello,” “goodbye,” “thank you” and of course “pear”: pera, birne, гру́ша [GROO-sha], and more to come).
I’ll be sharing highlights of the exciting and interesting activities that are taking place to promote USA Pears around the world.
My favorite pear variety is Comice. Yum!
