According to a site called Melissa’s, the organic Starkrimson pear is known for its “deep red exterior” and “high juice content”. Both descriptions were on the mark. I initially bought the pears for their bright red color, but once I took a bite, it was easy to see that they’re a step above your average pear. Like an in-season peach from the farmers’ market, the pear was so juicy, it dribbled down our chins. The kids loved them, so we’ll definitely pick up a few more of these sometime soon. I hope you’ll try them too.
ME: Guys, what is this one called?
LAUREN: A red pear.
ME: Yeah, but it has a funny name…it’s called a “Starkrimson” pear.
LAUREN: AND, it could be called a red pear too.
ME: What do you think it’s going to taste like, a regular pear or different?
LAUREN: I think kind of different. Maybe in the middle of the both of them. Kind of different and kind of the same.
SAM: Is THIS an orange?
ME: That’s an orange, that’s not mystery food right now.
ME: What does a pear taste like?
LAUREN: I forgot.
ME: Sam, do you know?
SAM: It tastes like that! (Pointing at the pear)
LAUREN: Well, we don’t know what it tastes like yet Sam.
SAM: Can I try?
ME: Yeah, let me cut them into little chunks for you guys.
LAUREN: But first we have to say what it smells like, looks like…
ME: Oh yeah, sorry guys, I forgot!
ME: What does it look like?
LAUREN: This smells like regular pear!
ME: What does it feel like?
EMMA: Regular pear.
LAUREN: Slimy goo.
ME: Slimy goo?
ME: What does it taste like?
LAUREN: It’s gooder than a regular pear.
ME: Do you think it’s better than a regular pear Sam?
EMMA: Better than regular pear.
ME: Sam, you too?
SAM: I don’t like it.
ME: Well that’s OK, more for us.
SAM: Sour. I want an orange instead.
ME: What do you think, should I get more of this?
LAUREN: Yeah, lots more.
SAM: A thousand more?
I just bought pears today – tis the season! Love pears as does my little guy! Enjoy!
Absolutely, I love them too. Have been eating our way through our truckload of apples from our picking session, love this time of year.
