Very Nice

Fruit will vary but I have ordered this product a few times and the pears were really lovely. Firm but ripe without that horrible cloying over ripe flavour. Probably best to eat within a few days.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

Delicious pears but hit and miss

Maybe it's because they're rip and ready but so hit and miss regarding the stage of ripeness. Despite the ridiculous a amount of packaging these pears can arrive bruised and battered. They are a delicious variety though. When they come in good condition they are the best I have ever eaten.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

Nice Pear

I agree that these can be a little untamed, but the one I just ate was really special.

firm texture, sweet flavour

Batches do vary and it's worth eating within two days of purchase. It feels unripe but when bite into it, it's full of flavour and perfect. It holds its texture much better than other pears I've tried. A couple of batches were riper than others so don't hold off!
