Ayers Pear

Ayers Pear is valued for its short-necked, medium-sized, yellow fruit with a red blush. The flesh is smooth, juicy and melting with a very sweet flavor, free of grit, making it excellent for eating, and also for salads and the kitchen. Ripening in late summer, the luscious, smooth textured flesh is very sweet.

Available in October.

Sekel Pear

Seckels are tiny pears, with a chubby, round body, small neck, and short stem. Their skin is usually olive green, but frequently exhibits a dark maroon blush that sometimes covers the entire surface of the pear.

Because of their petite size, Seckels can easily be overshadowed by the larger varieties. However, it's their size which makes them a perfect choice for certain uses:

• Added to lunch boxes or bags.
• Small enough to be canned whole.
• Use a small half as a plate garnish or dessert-topper.

Available in October.

Bartlett Pear

The Bartlett carries a true pyriform "pear shape:" a rounded bell on the bottom half of the fruit, then a definitive shoulder with a smaller neck or stem end. Bartletts are extremely aromatic pears, and have that definitive "pear flavor." Often, Bartletts are begin green, and then they change to yellow as they ripen when left at room temperature.

Bartletts are much more than just a canning pear, and besides eating them fresh, you can also enjoy their wonderful flavor and smooth texture in a range of dishes. Always remember that any recipe calling for apples can be made using fresh pears and Bartlett pears are an excellent choice!

Available in October.

Bosc Pear

Bosc pears stand out in a crowd for many reasons. Their long, curved stem and elegant elongated neck that widens gradually to a full rounded base creates a silhouette that is unique among pears. Bosc are also unique for their color: a warm cinnamon brown with russeting over the surface of the skin.

Bosc pears have a more firm, dense flesh than other pear varieties, so they are ideal for use in baking, broiling or poaching. They retain their shape and texture better than other varieties, and their flavor is less likely to be overwhelmed by the use of strong spices like cinnamon, clove or nutmeg. Of course, they are also excellent for fresh eating, particularly by those who prefer a firm texture.

Available in October.
