D’Anjou is egg or oval-shaped, and yellow to light green in color with some speckling. It does not change color when ripe, so check ripeness often for optimal eating. They have a mild, slightly acidic flavor and firmer texture than other varieties so they are the best choice for cooking techniques, such as poaching. However, the skin may darken and toughen when cooked, so they should be peeled first if you wish to avoid this.
