Bosc pears stand out with a long, curved stem and elongated neck that widens gradually to a full rounded base, creating a silhouette that is unique among pears. They have a warm cinnamon brown skin, sometimes with russeting. Their flavor is sweet with honeyed undertones. The flesh of Bosc is denser than that of other European pears. Bosc pears can be enjoyed while still a bit firm, or you can wait until they soften. However, keep in mind that Bosc will "give" less than other pears when they are ready.
Season: October, November, December
Suggested uses: Bosc pears are ideal for use in baking, broiling or poaching. They retain their shape and texture, and their flavor is less likely to be overwhelmed by the use of strong spices like cinnamon, clove or nutmeg. Of course, they are also excellent for fresh eating, particularly by those who prefer a firm texture.
