    red bartlets

  269. Jennifer Farnes says:

    Bosc and Concord…with the Concord edging up slightly. I can only get the Concord in Oregon when I am there. The memory of that delicious pear is a bit rapturous. My favorite way to eat a Bosc, other than simply diving into it, is to slice it over gorgonzola cheese that lies on olive oil brushed naan bread. I sprinkle fresh rosemary over it and bake it for about 7 minutes. Once plated, I drizzle honey over the whole thing. Heaven. I’ve been known to eat this four nights in a row in order to finish up the package of naan and four pears.

  270. Keziah Gibbons says:

    I love them all but my favorite is the Anjou pear! I love to put in the refrigerator to get nice and cold and then eat! So crunchy!

    Hey Diane,

  283. Robert Munn says:

    Comice Winter pear
    Huge, perfect sweet flavor, best when still firm. What a fantastic pear. Seem best after frosts here in Manhattan, Illinois, good through most all of Nov this year. So firm that 75% of them still unhurt off the ground.

  284. Barbara Kitchens says:

    We really like Comice pears. They are so sweet and delicious. Can halve and remove seeds and eat fruit out of skin with a spoon.

  285. Mary Hunt says:

    Red Bartlett is my favorite, but I am not picky. I love them all. Yum.

  286. Deborah Andriano says:

  295. Diane Johnson says:

    Of the ten pears listed, I only know five, the two Ajous, two Bartletts and Bosc. However, buying pears in the local (Minnesota) grocery stores has been such a disappointment for years, I gave up purchasing the fruit. The pears always seemed to be too hard and/or flavorless. If I won these directly mailed pears, it might be the beginning of a new relationship.

    We love Bosc!

    i love all kind of pears specially if poached! Red bartletts are quite good

  302. Julane j jenison says:

    I like all pears but my newest favorite is StarKrimson which I tried for the first time at the Harvest Festival in SE Portland. They had samples of all these different varieties and for the pear lover, it was a little bit of heaven!!

    Starkrimson pears are my favorite. They are so beautiful on the outside, and sweet, creamy and delicate inside.

  339. Rita A says:

    I love a juicy Comice pear the best!

  340. Stephanie Stage says:

    This is a cool picture with all the pears. I wish I could frame it and hang it in my kitchen. The theme in my kitchen is pears. I love the various colors that pears come in. I love that they are sweet but not too sweet. I already follow USA Pears on Facebook and my family thinks I am pear crazy! 🙂

  352. Arlene Aughey says:

My kids love them too and it’s a nice alternative to apples which we also love. I’ve also added them to smoothies but found it hides the flavour and who wants that – no me 😉
