Season: Late August - December

Growing Region: Sacramento River Delta, California, Rogue River Valley Oregon and The Hood River Valley, Oregon

Flavor Profile: With the highest sugar content of all pears, the Comice is sweet and juicy, with a rich buttery flavor and a smooth, fine texture

Ripening: Its greenish-yellow color changes very little during ripening, but it does yield to pressure and soften around the stem when ripe

The Comice is best eaten sliced and eaten alone or served with strong cheeses. The Comice’s juiciness keeps it from being a good cooking pear
