This Week's Fruit: October 15, 2018

Warren Pears
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
This is Frog Hollow Farm's signature pear and for good reason. Too difficult to grow for most farmers to consider it's never caught on commercially but Farmer Al has never shied awayfrom putting the time and effort into a fruit that tastes so good. With a classic European texture, very soft and juicy with a silky sweetness that avoids the typical grittiness found in most pears.
