My Experience

Move over citrus fruits, green d’Anjou pears have arrived. This sweet and oh-so-juicy pear has noticeable citrus flavors that leaves you feeling fresh and energized.

D’Anjou pears are one of the best keeping pears and can be used in many ways. We love it fresh as a snack or paired with a sharp cheese, but you can also bake or poach this pear.

My Story

The popular green pear is thought to originate in Belgium, however the variety is named after the Anjou region in France. It was brought to the US in 1842 by Col. Marshall P. Wilder who grew the pear on his estate in Boston.

This pear can be called other things including the Danjou pear or the Anjou Pear and is a top contender for many pear lovers. In fact, Jelly Belly thought the Anjou had the perfect pear flavor for their Juicy Pear jelly bean! D’Anjou pears are tricky to ripen, so be sure to follow our steps on The Stem blog.

My Story

D'Anjou pears are thought to have originated in the 1800s in Belgium, but the variety is named after the Anjou region in France. D’Anjou pears were brought to the U.S. in 1842 by Col. Marshall P. Wilder. He grew the pear on his estate in Boston. Today, d’Anjou is a well-known winter pear with a great shelf life. You'll also hear this green pear called a winter pear, Danjou pear, and Anjou pear. A sport of this variety, Red d’Anjou, is also grown by Stemilt. A sport is a natural mutation of the tree that often goes unnoticed, and rarely yields marketable fruit.
