An attractive looking pear, Beurre Bosc is commonly chosen as a model for still-life paintings. With its long tapering neck and symmetrical shape, this pear has an elegant profile. It’s no surprise that Beurre Bosc has been dubbed the “aristocrat of pears.” Its rough, russet skin ranges from greenish brown to cinnamon. The flesh is crisp, juicy, and aromatic. The flavor is eloquently sweet with a tart note. It is an excellent dessert pear, and a good choice for eating raw or poaching.
Beurre Bosc originated in France as a chance seedling in 1835. Buerre is the French term for butter, a fitting epithet for the melt-in-your-mouth quality of Beurre Bosc.
