Also known as Williams Bon Chrétien or Barlett pears, their green skin turns pale green when ripe.
Enjoy them fresh when they are ripe and juicy, or use them for cooking when they are on the firmer side.
How to Pick:
To select a pear which is ripe and ready to eat, gently apply pressure around the stem or neck of the fruit (ripe pears will give slightly under pressure).
Look for bright coloured pears which are free from any bruising.
How to Store:
For firm pears, store in the fruit bowl so they can ripen to your liking. For ripened pears, store in the fridge and eat within 1-2 days.
Where it's Grown:
Our hand picked pears are 100% Australian grown. Pears are grown on trees in the colder climate regions of Australia. Most of Australia’s pears are grown in the Goulburn Valley.
Pears are high in fibre to support a healthy gut, and a good source of folate.*
