Organic Abate Fetel Pears

Old world pear. Timeless flavor. Abate Fetel Pears are named for a French monk who first bred them in an abbey orchard in the 15th century. They are quite popular in southern Europe, especially Italy. How do they taste? Abate Fetel are crisper than an Anjou and honey-sweet like a Bosc. Yes, they’re great for salads or baking. A pear as special as the Abate Fetel is best enjoyed as a stand-alone snack or dessert, paired with some fine, strong cheese. Abate Fetel Pears are long and slender with a slight curve at the top of the neck. Their skin is green to yellow in color with natural freckles and areas of brown russetting.

Ripeness Tip

Allow Abate Fetel Pears to ripen at room temperature until they give just slightly under thumb pressure near the stem for a sweet and fruity-flavored piece of fruit. Check them daily. Too hard and you won’t enjoy the sweetness at its best. Too soft and they might become mushy or mealy inside.
