Townsville's Favourite

Pears

Our pears are the epitome of sweet and juicy delight. Each bite is a burst of honeyed flavour, with a soft and buttery texture that melts in your mouth. Grown in lush orchards, these pears are carefully nurtured to bring out their natural sweetness. They’re perfect for a quick snack or as a key ingredient in various recipes. Try them in a fresh salad with walnuts and blue cheese, or bake them into a mouth-watering pear tart. The possibilities are endless and always delicious.

When selecting the best pears at the store, look for ones that are firm to the touch but yield slightly when pressed. A good pear should be free from bruises and blemishes. The skin should be smooth and vibrant in colour. For immediate enjoyment, choose pears that are already ripe. If you plan to eat them later, pick ones that are a bit firmer. Smell the pears too; a ripe pear will have a fragrant aroma. Remember, pears ripen at room temperature, so plan accordingly.

There are countless ways to enjoy pears. They make a great addition to cheese boards, pairing beautifully with a variety of cheeses. For a warm treat, try poaching pears in red wine with a dash of cinnamon. You can also blend them into smoothies for a naturally sweet flavour. Whether eaten raw, cooked, or blended, pears bring a touch of elegance and sweetness to any dish.
