Also called D’Anjou. A pear variety with a rounded bottom and a very short neck. Typical Anjou pear skin is greenish-yellow, but there are Red D’Anjou pears as well. This fruit is juicy, sweet, and fine-textured, refrigerating very well when still firm. They are available year round in North America with fresh harvests arriving in stores in September.
