I'm thinking of planting a pear tree. I'll take a pear over an apple any day--sweeter, with a softer, more almost luscious texture, pears are my second-favorite fall fruit (the top spot goes to pomegranates, hands-down). Pears are at the market now, but which to buy? Bartlett or Bosc? Anjou or Comice? Learn which pears cook best, eat best, keep best in this simple Guide to Pear Varieties. And then make your weekend sweet with these luscious Pear Desserts.
