Green Anjou Pears

Anjou Pears are perfect for slicing onto salads made with bitter greens or lettuces, pairing with strong cheeses and for snacking. Green Anjou Pears continue to be an excellent in-season choice for a juicy, all-purpose Pear. Check the neck for ripeness!

Check the neck. Gentle thumb pressure near the stem will clue you in to the firmness inside. A little give means they’ll be sweet and juicy!

Anjou Pear Tips

  • Anjou Pears don’t really change color as they ripen. So how do you know when they’re juicy-ripe?
  • Check the neck. Gentle thumb pressure near the stem will clue you in to the firmness inside. A little give means they’ll be sweet and juicy!
  • Ripen Anjou Pears at room temperature or speed up the process by placing them in a paper bag.
