A locally-grown California favorite, French Butter Pears are an autumn fruit with a too short season.
French butter pears are small to medium in size and have a globular shape with a short neck and a long, thick stem.
The somewhat bulbous pear is known for having the distinct and fragrant aroma of roses. Its green skin is often covered in russet and becomes slightly yellow when ripe.
The flesh is dense and smooth with a buttery, creamy consistency. These pears are also known for being sweet and with very juicy flesh.
