Red Crimson pears have a ruby red skin, just as the name suggests, with a thick, stocky stem. The flesh is a yellow-cream color, tender, and very juicy. Red Crimson pears have a mild, sweet flavor with a floral aroma.
Red Crimson pears are available at the end of the summer, through the mid-winter.
Red Crimson pears are botanically classified as Pyrus communis and get their common name from the brilliant ruby color of their skin. The crimson fruit is also known as Starkrimson, which was named for the Stark Bros nursery that originally propagated and patented the variety. The variety is also simply called Crimson pear. This variety is one of the first to make an appearance at the beginning of pear season.
Red Crimson pears add a touch of color to a variety of dishes. Slice Red Crimson pears and add to green salads or to a charcuterie board. Use skin-on, sliced Red Crimson pears to make a colorful pear tart. Pears store well when refrigerated, up to three weeks. To ripen, leave out at room temperature for a couple of days.
Red Crimson pears were discovered in 1950s Missouri as a spontaneous mutation (or “sport”) on the tree of a green pear. Patented in 1956, Red Crimson pears are grown in the Pacific Northwest and in the cooler, northern climates of the Mid-west.
