About this itemA rich and sweet pear that is best eaten fresh sliced, or paired with cheese.
With the highest sugar content of all pears, the Comice is sweet and juicy, with a rich buttery flavor and a smooth, fine texture. Its greenish-yellow color changes very little during ripening, but it does yield to pressure and softens around the stem when ripe. Ripen at room temperature. Refrigerate only when your pears have reached your desired ripeness. To determine ripeness, apply gentle thumb pressure on the stem end. When the fruit gives slightly, it is ready to eat. 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.
