Columbia Gorge Winter Pear
The distinct flavors, shapes, textures, and colors make these gourmet pears a wonderful gift for anyone on your gift list.
This fresh fruit gift box of 12 premium pears includes a mix of varieties — Columbia Green Anjou, Golden Russet Bosc, and Columbia Red D’Anjou —grown on our farm in Mount Hood, Oregon. The rich, volcanic soils and cool summer nights make the Hood River Valley one of the most prolific pear-growing regions in the United States. Our Columbia Gorge Winter gift box lets you taste the very best that the Hood River Valley has to offer. Green Anjou pears are sweet, juicy, and have a mild hint of citrus, while Golden Russet Bosc pears are crisp and mildly sweet. And, rounding out the Columbia Gorge Winter gift box, Columbia Red D’Anjou pears are juicy, with a fresh, sweet and slightly tangy flavor.
Storage and Handling Tips: If kept in the refrigerator these pears can store up to three weeks and when you're ready to ripen them simply set them out at room temperature and wait two to three days. To determine if they are ready to eat, apply gentle thumb pressure near the stem end. If the fruit gives slightly, it is ready to eat. Bruising on the surface does not necessarily indicate damage to the interior flesh.
Culinary Tips: The versatile Mt. Hood pears in this fruit gift box are great for eating fresh or baking into a sweet or savory dish.
Packaging: Each Columbia Gorge Winter gift box comes with a mix of Columbia Green Anjou, Golden Russet Bosc, and Columbia Red D’Anjou pears packaged in a custom McCarthy Family Farm box made with recycled materials. They nest in a specially designed foam pad covered with crinkle paper, both of which protect the pears during their trip from our farm to you or your gift recipients.
