Flavor Profile Highly aromatic and flavorful pear with dense flesh. Brown in color, Bosc often russets and does not change color as it ripens.

Bosc pear has a firmer, dense flesh than other pear varieties, making it ideal for use in cooking. It retains its shape and texture better than other varieties, and its flavor is less likely to be overwhelmed by the use of spices like cinnamon, clove, or nutmeg. Bosc pear is ideal for poaching. The Bosc pear's natural nutty, spicy notes partner well with Cabernet Sauvignon and Italian red wines, such as Barbaresco. Try pairing Bosc with Pecorino Romano, aged cheddar, or Manchego cheeses.
