Bosc

Flavor Profile Highly aromatic and flavorful pear with dense flesh. Brown in color, Bosc often russet and do not change color as they ripen.

Bosc pears have a more firm, dense flesh than other pear varieties, making them ideal for use in cooking. They retain their shape and texture better than other varieties, and their flavor is less likely to be overwhelmed by the use of spices like cinnamon, clove or nutmeg. Bosc pears are ideal for poaching. The natural nutty, spicy notes of the Bosc pear partner well with Cabernet Sauvignon and Italian red wines, such as Barbaresco. Try pairing Bosc with Pecorino Romano, aged cheddar, or Manchego cheeses.
