Low in sodium, fat and calories, fresh pears have no cholesterol and provide a source of dietary fiber, vitamin C and folate.
Enjoy this particularly juicy pear fresh or slice and add to a variety of salads. Bake, pickle, can, freeze, make fresh baby food or jams, jellies and sauces. Cook into an all-fruit conserve; spread on toast, waffles or pancakes. Ripen fruit in a paper bag at room temperature. Refrigerate ripe fruit for only a day or two.
Pears are one of the two dozen plants that have been cultivated for more than four thousand years. The Romans were especially fond of pears, according to Pliny, who two millennia ago, enumerated more than forty pear varieties.
A natural mutation of Doyenne du Comice, this russet Comice was first discovered by Michael King-Turner in his Riwaka orchard near Nelson, New Zealand, in 1986. This new russet pear is now available in limited quantities in some markets in the United States and has been named Taylor's Gold. New Zealand growers say the Taylor's Gold pear prefers cooler climates, similar to the climates in some areas of the Pacific Northwest.
