Sweet and juicy, British pears are at their best right now. With a pale green skin and a soft flesh that has a subtle sweetness, pears are an iconic autumnal harvest fruit. They continue to ripen after picking, so don't be put off by a firm pear - it'll soften nicely in your fruit bowl. Rocha pears from Portugal are great for baking into tarts whilst crunchier Comice pears are perfect for slicing into crisp salads.
