I’m D’Anjou, a sweet and juicy pear with a hint of citrus.
I was named after a region in France and now grow in Washington State. I’m bright green in color and shaped like an egg.
One tricky thing about me is that it’s tough to tell when I’m ripe. I suggest you press my neck with your thumb before you eat me. If you can see the shape of your thumb after pressing, I’m ready to eat.
