Featured in MARTHA STEWART LIVING, November 2011, the Warren pear has a classic European texture--very soft and juicy--with a silky sweetness that avoids the typical grittiness found in most varieties. Warrens are harvested in late August and are available until late December or early January.
The Warren is to our pears as the Cal Red is to our peaches and the Flavor King to our pluots. This is Frog Hollow Farm's signature pear and for good reason. It has a great origin story: this pear was discovered by Thomas Oscar Warren growing naturally outside a post office in Hattiesburg, MS. Once known as the Post Office pear, it's taken on its founder name and is a favorite of chefs. Too difficult to grow for most farmers to consider it's never caught on commercially but Farmer Al has never shied away from putting the time and effort into a fruit that tastes so good.
