Warren pears are available from late summer until mid-winter.
The Warren pear is considered to be one of the single most delicious American pears, that many don’t know exists. It is the result of a cross between the sweet and spicy American heirloom Seckel pear and the European Comice pear; both are varieties of the European Pyrus communis. Some mystery surrounds its origin, but it is most definitely an American pear.
The Warren pear is the perfectly crafted composition of its parentage. Its appearance, though less than perfect (its skin slightly scarred by nature) is quintessential: bulbous, yet bell-shaped, sun-kissed with tones of earth, sun and clay and dotted with bronze freckles hinting at the fruit's ripeness. When ripe, the fruit is semi-firm to the touch and the flesh of the fruit is soft, but not too tender, succulent and juicy, aromatic and candy-sweet but not cloying with complex undertones of vanilla, honey and spice.
Aside from eating fresh out of hand, the Warren pear exceeds expectations on all levels. It will heighten a fresh salad, become an accoutrementing ingredient in a soup and the main attraction in a dessert. Warren pears can be poached, caramelized, made into a compote and even a syrup. Warren pears compliment flavors, rich, tart and sweet. These include salted and cured pork, blue cheeses, nutty cheeses, chiles, anise, ginger, dried fruits (such as cherries, cranberries and figs), chocolate, quince, caramel and honey.
Thomas Oscar Warren is said to have discovered the Warren pear growing in an abandoned experimental orchard in Hattiesburg, Miss., circa 1976. The pear had been growing with uncommon and unlikely success in the heat of the Deep South, surviving the fire blight that ravaged most pear crops in the United States and is to be blamed for the sheer lack of many American heirloom pear varieties. Some mystery surrounds the origin of the Warren pear, with some speculating that it was in fact the Magness pear, which was developed by Mississippi State University and had since been abandoned in an experimental field not far from Hattiesburg.
