DOMESTIC / Mid-October - Mid-January
Comice is one of the largest and sweetest pear varieties, earning them the nickname, “Queen of the Pears." They have a very delicate skin, and you will often see them individually wrapped in paper for protection. Comice are thick-necked with yellow flesh and a red blush that does not show a drastic change in color when ripe. Instead, check for ripeness by pressing lightly near the stem. When the pear yields slightly, it is ready to eat. Comice are great paired with wine and cheese, as their distinct, lingering taste hold its own with other intense flavors.
