Hello, I’m the Tosca pear.
I originally called Italy home and but now I'm the first pear to come off Stemilt’s trees in Washington State each August. I’m part Coscia, a variety from Tuscany, and part Bartlett. You’ll love my delicious sweet, juicy and a little exotic flavor. Be sure to enjoy me when you see me, I’m not available in stores very long!
