Producer

At this time of year, whilst we await the first of the UK fruit, our pears are grown by an organic cooperative located in the rolling lushness of the South of France. They also grow our winter lettuces and round courgettes. We go way back with these guys and have been working together for over 10 years now.

We are also lucky to receive some of the Minisci families, pears this summer too. Located in Calabria, Southern Italy, they work with other families in the region to form a corporative of organic growers, producing things such as olive oil, grapes and brassicas. Their organic pears are usually Williams or Abate varieties.

Storage & prep

Peel pears with a potato peeler, if necessary. To eat whole, they just need a rinse. Pears are great baked in wine with vanilla and cinnamon, and there are many other ways to cook them. Depending on the texture you prefer, you can keep them in the fridge for a crunchier taste. If you like them softer then keep them at room temperature until they are as soft as you want. Suitable for home freezing.
