Bartlett pears have clear, yellow skin when ripe. Their flesh is juicy and sweet with a fine-grained, smooth texture. They’re downright delicious on their own and, because they keep their flavour even after heating, they’re a natural for canning.
TASTE: sweet & buttery
FLESH: almost translucent
BEST FOR: snacking, baked desserts, jams, jellies
