South Africa Forella Pear [800g/Pack]
Forelle is an attractive bi-coloured pear with a speckled appearance. Forelle pears have firm, almost crisp, sweet, tangy flesh and a white-yellow background colour to the peel. The peel is smooth and thin and does not detract from the eating experience. These are small to medium sized, elongated pears of the classic oblong pyriform bell-shape.
Forelle pears need to be ‘conditioned’ after harvest (stored for a few weeks), otherwise they will be slightly astringent. Following conditioning, the fruit is generally eaten in a ‘softening’ state. However, with the advent of Smartfresh (an ethylene suppressant that slows-down ripening), the marketing of Forelle, particularly from South Africa has changed significantly: they are now be generally sold in a firm, crisp state to be eaten more or less like an apple.
