Combining the best of both sides of its family tree, the Concorde carries the elongated shape and crisp texture of the Conference, and the mellow sweetness and abundant juice of the Comice.
If crisp texture is desired, Concorde pears can be eaten almost immediately upon purchase. As Concordes ripen they become more golden, slightly softer, and more mellow in flavor. The Concorde's dense flesh makes them ideal as a cooking pear, with the ability to hold shape and flavor in baking, poaching, jams and preserves.
A unique quality of the Concorde is that it is very slow to oxidize, or turn brown. This feature makes them especially well-suited for fresh salads and desserts.
Usage: An excellent dessert pear.>> Back to Main Pears Page
