Actually, the classic Conference pear is not yellow, but mostly brown, like this one:
Who cares what colour they are? I'll take them any way I can get them!
Regular followers will know that I only have one pear tree, and that is a Minarette, so I am not taking in a big harvest - just 11 pears. Actually, I picked 9 today, the other two (bottom right) being the ones I have had indoors for the past fortnight or so.
For curiosity's sake, I weighed the fruits:- 2.16 Kgs all told.
Since this photo was taken the two ripe ones have been eaten served on toasted spicy Fruit Loaf, topped with Roquefort cheese browned under the grill.
This is a wonderful combination. You must try it! Serve it with a glass of dessert wine...
Which reminds me in a round-about way, my pickled pears will be ready for eating in another week or so. I can hardly wait to try them.
