This item is currently only available for in store pickup or same day delivery.D'Anjou pear varieties are the main winter pear grown in B.C., and are available in both red and green pears. D'Anjou pears grown commercially in Canada come from British Columbia. They are recognizable by their egg-shaped appearance. Neither the red or green variety changes color with ripening so the best way to tell when an Anjou is ripe is to press gently against the stem end of the fruit. If it gives slightly, your Anjou is ripe and ready to be eaten.
The D'Anjou pear is a popular winter pear due to its mild, sweet flavor and it's abundance of juice. D'Anjou pears are also called the 'Green Anjou' and these pear varieties are harvested green.
The flesh ripens over time into a sweet, juicy, flavorful pear and a firm, dense texture that is less grainy than other pear varieties. D'Anjou pears have excellent keeping qualities. Ripe D'Anjou's should be kept in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Because of their deliciously rich flavor, D'Anjou pears are best eaten fresh out of hand or in fresh salads. They can also be good for baking or poachingbefore they are fully ripe. Anjou pears can also be used in a pear pie recipe, cakes, pear crisp and crumbles, sherbet, preserves, pastas and in fresh salads as a main course.
