Aromatic and sweet, these European Pears can be enjoyed when still firm, or allowed to ripen on the counter until soft, for a sweeter flavor. These will either be of the Buerre D’Anjou, Potomac or Harrow Crisp variety -- all have a lovely blush.
Store in the refrigerator, or on the counter to encourage ripening.
Bill and Andrea at Champlain Orchards are committed to ecological practices and are Eco-Apple certified. Due to the challenges of our Northeast climate, organic certification of pears is incredibly difficult. Their pears are never sprayed; only in the flowering stage are the trees treated using Integrated Pest Management to cut down on the risk of scab. No chemical pesticides are used on the orchards.
