The Beurré Bosc Pear is a sweet, buttery and firm pear. While not as popular as mainstream varieties like the Packham Pear, their traditional pear shape and firmer texture makes them great for cooking, particularly poaching.

Nutritional Benefits

Pears are rich in fibre, containing both soluble and insoluble fibre, helping to keep you feeling fuller for longer, and support a healthy digestive system. They are also low GI, making them a great snack for blood sugar regulation when paired with a source of fat and protein like nuts.

Storage

Pears ripen from the inside out. Beurré Boscs are ripe when their green-brown skin starts to turn a distinct cinnamon colour.

To speed up the ripening process, you can try a couple of tricks:

  • Place pears in a paper bag and keep at room temperature. This traps the ethylene gas that the pears emit, resulting in them ripening faster. To really speed up the process, add a banana into the paper bag with the pears.
  • Keep them in the fruit bowl with bananas or apples, which also give off ethylene gas that encourages ripening.

The opposite also applies – avoid keeping ripe pears alongside bananas and apples, or they will over-ripen and become mealy. Once pears are ripe, they will stay fresher and last longer when stored in the fridge. Refrigeration helps delay the ripening process. Avoid stacking ripe pears to prevent bruising.

Don’t throw away over-ripe pears – use them to make jams, or stew with cinnamon for a lovely accompaniment to yoghurts and porridge.
