A variety of pears are available at different times during the year, each with their own characteristics, making it ideal for either cooking, eating raw as a dessert, or both. The Comice pear is rounded with a sweet taste and buttery texture. The Concorde pear provides subtle hints of vanilla with every bite, whilst the Williams Pear has a juicy ‘pear drop’ flavour. Other favourites include the Nashi pear which has the crunch of an apple, but the texture of a pear, and the Conference pear which is long and tapering and argueably the best all rounder pear, providing a sweet and juicy snack whilst storing and handling well.
