Product Details

Is it possibly the most acclaimed eating pear ever produced? Well the London Horticultural Journal thinks so, but we'll let you be the judge. You won't see it for sale on supermarket shelves as it is delicate and easily bruised when machine graded, however for the backyarder you need not worry about that, in fact it means this exquisite pear remains the domain of the boutique grower.

A greenish-yellow skinned large pear with a beautiful creamy/buttery texture that does literally melt in your mouth. The flavour is very sweet and highly aromatic. Best eaten fresh, leave the cooking to the Buerre Bosc as the Comice's sweet juicy flesh doesn't hold up well when heated.
