About

Known as either Bartlett or Williams – These have a smooth juicy white flesh and are beautifully sweet. The colour changes from bright green to intense yellow when ripe.

Bartlett pears have a distinct flavour, uniquely sweet with a buttery smooth texture.

Bartlett pears brighten as they ripen – When yellow, they are ready to eat.

Choose fruit that is only slightly blushed, which will allow you 3-5 days of refrigerator storage.
