Bartlett pears are a variety of pear that can be identified by their thin green or yellow skin and soft, juicy flesh. When picked while still firm and green, they are crisp and have a pleasant sweet-sour flavor. However, as the pear ripens and the skin turns yellow, the flesh becomes incredibly smooth and juicy, with a delicious honeyed sweetness and strong aroma. Bartlett pears are prized for their versatility in both sweet and savory dishes and are also a great source of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. They are the definitive pear flavor.
