Toffeed Pears

For thousands of years, the pear has been celebrated as "the gift of the Gods," as quoted by the Greek poet, Homer. And each variety has its special flavor and texture.

COMICE
Creamy, sweet and intensely juicy; connoisseurs eat it freshly sliced.
RED COMICE
The same juicy-sweet as the Comice with a skin blushed red by the summer sun.
D'ANJOU
Sweet, medium-grained pear with a great versatility. Add to salads, use in cakes and pies as well as serve fresh.
BOSC
An elongated shape. Matures to buttery texture and nutty flavor under a golden-russeted skin; ideal for baking and poaching.
SECKEL
This American native is the smallest pear on the market; fine-grained, ripening to candy-sweetness.
FORELLE
Freckled and blushed with red, this is an outstading pear for slicing and serving fresh.
