Sweet, juicy and the perfect texture

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Absolutely Terrible

Small, tasteless and absolutely terrible. Doesnt deserve even 1 star, but couldn't give 0 stars. Why on earth Ocado, who prides themselves on their British supply chain, are obtaining Conference Pears from Spain, when English Conference Pears have just come into season is beyond reason.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

not great

These pears were tasteless and went from hard to soft almost overnight

Stayed hard for ages

While this may be a desirable quality in a husband, it's not what you want from a conference pear!

Stayed hard then went off

These pears stayed very hard and then seemed to suddenly go off completely. We've tried 3 or 4 bags and had the same problem each time.
