About Organic Bartlet Pears Red
Called "Summer Pears" because of the time of year in which their harvest begins, Red Bartlett and other red summer pears like the Red Gold Pear, Red Silk Pear, and the Rosi Red are similar in shape and texture to Yellow Bartletts. Offering differing floral aromas and a supple sweetness, Summer Reds add a beautiful contrast of flavour and colour in fruit baskets and bowls.
Juicy and sweet, with a soft, buttery yet somewhat grainy texture, the white to cream-coloured flesh of pears was once referred to as the "gift of the gods". Pears are a good source of dietary fibre, vitamin C, copper, and vitamin K.
