Local BC Grown Bosc Pears
Best for poaching.
BC Grown Bosc Pears were cultivated first in France. They feature a true pear shape with a golden russet-coloured skin. The creamy, off-white flesh is tender yet crisp with an intense honeyed aroma.
The flesh of a Bosc pear may be dense, but it is also quite juicy; they stand up to cooking and retain their shape, making them ideal for tarts, pies and poaching.
Pairs well with Camembert cheese and sauvignon blanc.
