Earl’s Organic Buyer’s Notes March 31, 2019

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Durondeau Pear has a golden exterior with streaks of red blush and is covered all over in a soft russet. They are not ripe yet and we all had different opinions on the flavor, ranging from it punches you in the mouth, a bit tart with a crisp bite to having a floral flavor.  Earl thought it was similar to the Winter Nellis pear or honey pear known for its sweet flavor that goes great with cheese platters or in salads.  As the pear ripens the flavor will change and we would love to hear what you think on our Facebook wall.  The Durondeau is not a long term storage pear but it is amazing for fresh eating and cooking.  The light granular texture is similar to the Bosc Pear which is often used in desserts.  The Durondeau might ripen similar to the Bosc which gives less than other pears when you apply gentle pressure at the neck.   As a reminder pears ripen from the inside out.
