A Russian bred favourite, the Zarechnaya pear is renowned for its dependable performance in colder climates. Its golden-yellow skin gives way to sweet, buttery flesh with light tartness. Great to use for fresh eating and for baking. These pears weigh in at around 120 grams and come ripe in early September; when kept in cold storage, they'll stay fresh for up to 1 month.
