Bosc is a fast favorite among pear lovers and has been for years, which is why it is one of the world's most popular pears. This one-of-a-kind pear provides exceptionally delicious flavor and a beautiful presentation, with a long, tapered neck and dark russet skin.
Enjoy the Bosc Pear right off the tree, biting into its crunchy, crispy, juicy flesh for a late harvest treat. The spicy and sweet flavor develops early and is unique to the Bosc.
The flesh of this pear is firmer than other pears, which is why it's a cook's choice for baking and dessert-making. Bake it whole, drizzled in glaze, or slice it for a pear crisp that's out of this world. Fresh eating is also one of the best uses of the Bosc. Try it in green salads and as the perfect complement to gourmet cheese plates.
