Here come the pears!

Here are the 3 varieties of pears I am picking – Doyenne du Comice, Triumph du Vienna and Clergeau. Don’t let them ripen on the tree (apart from Seckle!) as they’ll go mushy by the core and get that gritty texture. Feel them like you do an avocado – slight give at the neck and when you lift them they come away from the tree. Store them in a cool dark place to get them to perfect melt in the mouth flesh ripenness. You know you’ve got it right when the juice dribbles down your chin!
