Description:

The Warren Pear is a deliciously sweet and juicy Pear. This variety was discovered by Thomas Oscar Warren as outside of a post office in Mississippi. The origin prior to his discovery is unknown and people have fallen in love with the delectable flavor and mysterious history. Warren's are soft and lack the grittiness of other pear varieties and is looked over by commercial growers due to the soft texture making it difficult to pack and transport in large quantities. The fruit is highly praised by chefs such as Alice Waters and has been featured in Martha Stewart Living.
