When an uncurled fern frond first peaks through the soil in the spring, it is called a "fiddlehead". Fiddlehead ferns offer an earthy, nutty flavor that has been likened to the taste of asparagus, artichokes, and mushrooms.
Hairy eggplant may be eaten raw by themselves or cooked in dishes to add a touch of piquant sweet and sourness -
Red Anjou Pears
Inventory, 20 lbs : 7.47
This item was last sold on : 05/02/16
Red Anjou pears have a slight egg shape, rotund at the base with a neck that grows thinner towards the stem. The skin of a Red Anjou pear can be as dark as maroon, a rust-colored red or a lighter, crimson red with occasional striations. Red Anjou pears have a soft, juicy flesh with a mild flavor. The flavor peaks around 2 months after harvest.
Red Anjou pears are available year-round, except for a short time in late summer.
Red Anjou pears are a European pear variety, botanically known as Pyrus communis. They are the red relatives of Green Anjou pears, the only true difference being the color of the fruit’s skin. The ruby-colored pears are known as Red D’Anjou or Red Danjou, the name D’Anjou in French means “of” or “from” referring to the pear’s place of origin: Angers, France.
Red Anjou pears are most often used for their color first, then for their taste and texture. They lend a hint of color to green salads and fruit baskets. Red Anjou pears are nicely suited to poaching in either red or white wine with a touch of cinnamon. Red Anjou pears ripen at room temperature, several days after purchase; refrigerate when ripe for just a few days. To store, keep un-ripened fruit refrigerated for up to two months.
Red Anjou pears were discovered as a “bud sport” growing on a green Anjou pear tree in Medford, Oregon in the 1950s and then again Parkdale, Oregon in the 1970s. Bud sports are naturally occurring mutations that typically go unnoticed on a tree, which was not the case for the Red Anjou pears. Red Anjou pears are predominantly grown in the US Pacific Northwest.
