About Bartlett pears

Bartlett pears are one of the juiciest pears you can get. It has a classic pear shape and flavor with a buttery texture. Bartlett pears are great for snacking, but they are also excellent in many other ways, such as a pear sauce. These pears are also a great choice for canning since they hold their shape, even when preserved.

In North America, the pear we call the Bartlett pear is called the Williams in other areas of the world. It was originally discovered in England and didn't arrive in the United States in 1799. A farmer in Roxbury, Massachusetts, planted the first tree but didn't have a name for them. Years later, Enoch Bartlett acquired the estate with the pear trees, and since he didn't know what they were, he started calling them Bartlett pears. 

Bartlett pears have many vitamins and minerals, including fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and iron. They are a healthy addition to your diet because of the high fiber count, and they also have anti-inflammatory properties because of the flavonoid antioxidants. Flavonoids can help fight inflammation and help decrease the risk of certain diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

Bartletts are a common canning pear, and they work well in a variety of processing from preserves, syrups, chutneys. Find Bartlett pears using the Instacart app and enjoy the convenience of having them delivered right to your door!

FAQs About Bartlett Pears

Red Bartlett pears have the same texture as green Bartletts. The only significant difference is the color of the skin. The red variety works perfectly in any recipe that calls for Bartlett pears, and they are also delicious as a snack. You can eat red Bartletts before they are ripe if you like a tart, crunchy texture. If you wait until they ripen, the flesh turns sweeter and juicier, just like the green ones. 

Bartlett pears freeze very well. Start with a firm-ripe pear, and then wash, peel, and core them. Cut up into slices or quarters, and add citric acid or lemon juice for every quart of water to keep them from browning. Soak the pears in this solution for a few minutes. Once soaked, you can choose from a few different preservation methods. Preserving in syrup will give them the best color and good texture, but you can also just drain and cool before packing into a freezer-safe bag before putting it in the freezer. 

If you want to freeze them in syrup, dissolve three cups of sugar in four cups of water. Bring it to a boil and add the pears to blanch for two minutes. Let cool, and then pack in freezer jars. Make sure to fill the empty space with syrup, leaving enough headspace for expansion.
