The pears from our orchard are amazing tasting right now.  We have bosc, red d’anjou, hosui Asian pears and concorde, all from our orchard and all organic.  The price per pound is $1.79.  The trick to pears is to hold them in the cooler for a couple months and they ripen slowly.  The sweetness becomes intense and there is no loss in flavor.  You know if you try to ripen especially the d’anjou pear fresh picked, that it never really ripens on the counter.  As a result, you may have given up on d’anjou pears, but if you come down and taste the red d’anjou’s we have right now you will change your mind.
