DOMESTIC / Mid-October - December
The Concorde pear originated in the United Kingdom in 1977. It is easily recognized by its exceptionally long neck. This variety is a cross between the Comice and the Conference pear, with the sweetness of the Comice, and the firm texture of the Conference. Don't be scared off by a few golden russet marks, which it inherits from the Conference pear - they are common with this variety and do not affect the flavor. When testing for ripeness, the Concorde will stay firm but the neck will yield to gentle pressure. This pear makes a great accompaniment to a cheese plate because it is very slow to brown.
