Green Anjou Pears are recognised by their egg-shape appearance, with a wide lower portion that tapers to a narrow top.
The D'Anjou Pear has a bright green skin colour, and only shows very subtle colour change while ripening.
This green pear is great for many different uses, from slicing fresh into salads to baking in pies and pureeing for sauces and beverages.
To maintain the best quality, ripen Anjour pears at room temperature. They may take 3-5 days to become fully ripe. One ripe, you can store them in the refrigerator where the ripening process will slow to a few more days.
The Anjou pear is a true all-purpose pear. Juicy when ripe, they have a subtle sweetness with a hint of lemon-lime citrus.
The dense flesh holds up for baking, poaching, roasting or grilling, but is also delicious used fresh in salads or as a snack.
