Fruit of the Month: Webster Comice Pears

Grown fresh in our very own Orchards, Webster Comice Pears are one of our favorite fruits for the Holidays. Comice pears are the sweetest and juiciest of all pear varieties and flourish in the volcanic soils of the Hood River Valley. The man who started it all, Roy Webster, described them as “the Cadillac of pears”, and his dear wife, Mary Webster, created her famous Chocolate Covered Comice Pears recipe in their honor.

Comice pears are beautiful in appearance, with a red blush covering small to large areas of the skin surface. These pears have a rotund body with a short, well defined neck. The delicious flesh of a Comice pear is what makes it world renowned. Match these pears perfectly with a variety of cheeses and or eat them sliced and with a spoon. Comice pears are so juicy when ripe that it’s a basic requirement you’ll need a pile of napkins while you eat.

High in fiber, copper, vitamin C and K, pears boast a wide variety of health benefits including antioxidants and can even possibly reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease. For the month of December we are offering our Webster Comice Pears at 10% off, orders yours today!

 

 

The Fruit Company® got its start in 1942 when Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. The company was passed down from father to son and today is owned and operated by Roy's Grandson Scott Webster.
