French Butter

French Butter

Season: Mid-August – late-September

Growing Region: The Sacramento River Delta, California

Flavor Profile: The French butter pear is nearly brown like a Bosc. And it’s shaped like an Anjou. It has a unique flavor however. It is delicately sweet with a smooth textured, very juicy flesh

Ripening: When the French Butter gives to gentle pressure at its stem end, it’s ready to eat

This is an excellent cooking pear to bake, poach or slice thin for a tart. This is also a good pear to simply eat sliced
