Red Bartlett pears turn a gorgeous bright red as they ripen, and have a smooth, sweet, and juicy flesh. These delicious pears add a colorful pop to salads and desserts, and create a pretty pink hue when pureed or juiced with their skin intact.
Handling & Storage Tips
Keep pears at room temperature for best flavor and even ripening. If you want to keep them a few days longer (or prefer them with more crunch) , store them in the refrigerator.
To see if your pear is ripe, apply gentle thumb pressure near the neck, or stem end. If it yields slightly, it's ripe!
