Commodity: French Butter Pear
Resembling a green bartlett pear, the French butter pear has a slight lemon flavor and a juicy, delicate texture. It has a green skin with russets and a creamy, dense, buttery flesh. French butter pears bruise easily. Because of their sweet flavor, they are often eaten raw or made into desserts, but they also pair well with savory flavors. They are available from September through December in the U.S.
