> Pear Asian 18 Ct

Description:

Asian pears are native to Japan and China where they have been grown for over 3000 years. The first documented appearance of an Asian pear in the United States was recorded in 1820 when a Chinese sand pear was imported to Flushing, New York. In the mid 1800â€ââ€Â¢s Asian pears made their way to the west coast by way of Chinese and Japanese Immigrants relocating to California after the Gold Rush. Today Asian pears are grown not only throughout Asia but in Italy, Spain, Australia, France, Chile and New Zealand as well. In the United States the bulk of commercial production comes from California and Oregon with a smaller supply coming out of Washington State, Kentucky and Alabama.ÂÂ

> Pear Bartlett 80 Ct.

Description:

Offering a very juicy, sweet, musky flesh, the texture of this medium to large pear is characteristically grainy. Most pears do not change color when they ripen, but the Bartlett is the exception to the rule as it turns from green to yellow when ripe. When slightly soft to the touch, pears are ready to eat.

> Pear Bosc 80 ct

Description:

 The Bosc, pronounced Bahsk, has a long tapering neck and lengthy stem. Shaped like no other pear and ranging from deep yellowish-brown to dark tan, its tender skin is brushed with bronze-russet markings. The dense crunchy flesh of this pear is sweetly spicy. To test for ripeness, use the typical thumb test for pears at its stem end. Bosc pears will yield to slight pressure somewhat less than other ripe pears because of their extra firm texture.ÂÂ
