Starkrimson pear


click on image for a description of the pear

Starkrimson pears are named for their brilliant crimson red color and feature a thick, stocky stem. The Starkrimson is a mild, sweet pear with a subtle floral aroma. It is very juicy when ripe and has a pleasant, smooth texture, making it perfect for snacking, salads, or any fresh use that shows off the brilliance of its skin. Just like Red Anjou and Red Bartlett, Starkrimson pears are often simply labeled as Red Pears in the grocery store.

The Starkrimson is a summer pear, meaning that harvest begins in August and it’s one of the first varieties to be found in markets at the start of pear season. It’s in season from August through November.

The Starkrimson is one of the few pears whose skin changes color as it ripens. Its color turns from deep crimson to bright crimson red, and its skin also becomes more thin and delicate. Its floral aroma and sweet juice develops during the ripening process, so a bit of patience will allow you to coax out this pear’s flavor potential. Remember to ripen all pears at room temperature, and only refrigerate pears to slow the ripening process once the pear is ripe and ready to eat.
