The Golden Russet Bosc pear is true to its name with a yellowish-white flesh and a uniformly russet brown skin. It has the classic Bosc pear shape with a long elegant neck. The Golden Russet Bosc pear may be eaten while it is crisp and firm or ripe and softened.
The Golden Russet Bosc pears are available from Frog Hollow during the fall months.
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 Golden Russet 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.
