Do You Anjou?
A Fresh, Green & Juicy Fragrance
There’s nothing like an Anjou pear to sweeten a fresh green salad. Or a pear upside-down cake, its juices carmelized to a golden brown. Or a tantalizing bite that drips sticky goodness down your chin.
Juicy green pears are as close to heavenly nectar as a fruit comes. In France, perfumers, chefs and pastry makers sing the praises of this sweet, succulent fruit, grown bountiful in countryside groves.
In Anjou Vert, Anjou (“ahn-JOO”) pear, ripe and buttery, mingles with rose petals, heady lilac and dewy cyclamen, subtly spiced with ginger, cinnamon and clove.
Also called green d’Anjou, this variety ripens after harvesting to yield a sweet, slightly brisk flavor with a hint of citrus. From where does the pear get its name? Likely from Angers, France (the d’ means “from” or “of”), where it was thought to have originated in the 1800s.
Lore has it the pear was introduced to the United States around 1842, where its flavor, versatility and long shelf life have made it a seasonal staple. Oregon presides first in its production of the crop.
