    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.
