Ideal Storage Temperatue : 32-35°F / 0-2°C A broad and rather lop-sided pear with a short neck, the tender skin of the Anjou pear, formally D'Anjou and pronounced AWN-joo, is a yellowish green color brushed with russet. A popular winter pear, the tender flesh of this sweet pear is overflowing with juice. Press gently against the stem end of the fruit to test for ripeness. If it gives slightly, the pear is ready to eat. This very sweet variety is excellent for a salad or for fresh eating. Saute with sunchokes and peppercorns to serve alongside pork-chops. For baking or poaching, use before fully ripe to maintain texture. To store, keep at room temperature until ripe. Ripe Anjou pears may be refrigerated, but only for a day or two as chilling can take away their juicy flavor.
