Organic D’Anjou Pears
A cultivar of the European Pear, the variety originated during the 19th century in Europe and is named after the Anjou region of France. It’s commonly referred to as Beurre d’Anjou, D’Anjou, or simply Anjou.
Juicy, sweet, and slightly firm, D’Anjou Pears are excellent eaten raw or gently cooked. The skin is pale green, often brushed with russet. The buttery white flesh has plenty of texture for the tongue. Aromatic and flavorful, it’s no surprise that D’Anjou puree is used for commercial pear flavor in many common candies.
