Season: Late-September – January (The Anjou is a unique pear in that it stores well in commercial cold storage. This means Anjou’s can be shipped to market nine months out of the year)

Growing Region: Rogue River valley, Oregon and The Hood River Valley, Oregon

Flavor Profile: The Anjou has a dense flesh that is mildly sweet

Ripening: The Anjou skin is bright green and sometimes can show a soft blush. The skin color changes only subtly during the ripening process. The Anjou is ripe when it yields to gentle pressure at the stem end

The Anjou is a versatile pear. Its dense flesh makes it hold up well in cooking but it also eats well sliced or out of hand
