Rivermaid Red

Season: Late July – mid-November

Growing Region: The Sacramento River Delta, California, Lake and Mendocino Counties, California

Flavor Profile: The beautiful Rivermaid Red Pear has the same flavor and texture as the Bartlett

Ripening: The skin of the Rivermaid will display and brighter and brighter red color as it ripens. When it yields to gentle pressure, it is ready to eat

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