Warren Pears, also known as European pears or Pyrus communis, are highly sought after by fruit enthusiasts due to their exceptional flavor and texture. These pears have a distinctive shape, slightly squat and rounder than other pear varieties, with a smooth, thin skin that ranges in color from pale yellow to green, sometimes with a blush of red on the sun-facing side.
Incredibly sweet with subtle hints of vanilla and honey, Warren Pears have a juicy and buttery flesh. Their texture is smooth and creamy, melting in your mouth with each bite.
Beyond their deliciousness, Warren Pears are also versatile in their uses. They can be enjoyed fresh as a healthy and refreshing snack or added to salads to introduce a burst of sweetness. These pears hold their shape well when baked, making them perfect for pies, tarts, and cakes, where they lend a natural sweetness. Furthermore, they can be used to make jams, jellies, and preserves, allowing their unique flavor to be enjoyed throughout the year.
Warren Pears are ripe when they yield slightly to gentle pressure at the stem.
