Bosc pears are available year round.
Bosc pears develop their sweetness before other pears do in their ripening process, these pears can be eaten before their flesh has become fully soft.
The Bosc, pronounced Bahsk, has a long tapering neck and lengthy stem. Shaped like no other pear and ranging from deep yellowish-brown to dark tan, its tender skin is brushed with bronze-russet markings. The dense crunchy flesh of this pear is sweetly spicy. To test for ripeness, use the typical thumb test for pears at its stem end. Bosc pears will yield to slight pressure somewhat less than other ripe pears because of their extra firm texture.
Pears offer a good source of vitamin C, folate and dietary fiber. One medium-sized pear has less than 100 calories. Most of the vitamin C content is in the skin of the fruit, so pears should be eaten unpeeled. Providing some potassium and iron, pears contain pectin, a soluble fiber that helps control cholesterol levels.
Having a sturdy dense flesh, this pear is ideal for cooking, especially poaching, sautéing or baking. The Bosc pairs perfectly with cheese, enjoy on a cheese plate or try a baked or slow roasted pear stuffed with gorgonzola. Thinly sliced and baked into a tart with crystallized ginger and rosemary makes for a simple yet flavorful dessert. To store, keep at room temperature until ripe and then refrigerate.
A pear with several synonyms, the Bosc is also called Buerré and Butter Brine for its buttery texture, Calabasse Bosc for its gourd-like shape and is also called Kaiser Alexander in some countries.
First introduced to the eastern United States in the early 1830s, the Bosc pears grown in the United Stated today are considered to have originated in France. Bosc pears grow well in the Northwest, especially with the soil and climate of Oregon and Washington State. California also supplies these popular pears to the market.
