Comice Pears

"Doyenné du Comice"


  • A pear with a buttery texture and juice so abundant that it spurts when you bite into it. Smells clean and green, like a meadow in the morning. We love to pair this meaty pear with a soft cheese like Brie or a robust one like Gorgonzola. The name is short for "Doyenne du Comice," which translates to "Top of the Show." We give it a blue ribbon for simply eating out of hand.

    Ripening Pears
    To ripen pears, store them at room temperature for 2 to 3 days. Since these fruits become more fragile as they ripen, try to store them loosely in a bowl or on a plate. When ripe, most pears will give slightly when pressed gently near the stem. Some pears, like Bartlett, turn from green to yellow and produce a fragrance as they ripen.

    Storing Ripe Pears
    Once a pear hits its peak ripeness, transfer it to the refrigerator crisper and eat within a few days.

    Storing Asian Pears
    Asian pears will remain quite firm when they are ripe, so the key to determining if they are ready to eat is aroma: a ripe Asian pear will be quite fragrant. If they are unblemished, most Asian pears should keep in the refrigerator crisper for up to 2 months. Wrap each pear in paper towels to protect it, and place in a perforated plastic bag.
