One of the best pears ever.
Taylor's Gold pears are hard to find in the US in stores, so I resorted to online and hoped for the best with a complete unknown in Frog Hollow. They did a great job of packing and shipping, the pears arrived in great shape and only a few bruises thanks to our UPS delivery driver's lack of love for his job. :) The pears themselves have been quite tasty. True, they are organic, so there is a evidence of just a little bugginess that got in through the blossom end a long time ago, but did little damage, was easily avoided, and was no longer in crawling around. Even the other folks in the house - who are really very, very picky about these things - found it completely acceptable. Overall, I'd order again. Great pears, great packing/shipping and customer information. Thanks.
Juicy, delicious, succulent. Just a wonderful piece of fruit!
The Taylor Gold appears to be hybrid between the Comice and the Bosc. It has a tough skin, like the Bosc, but a smooth texture, like the Comice. I enjoyed these pears. I recommend peeling them to get under that tough skin. They arrived in good shape and they ripened quickly. Don't wait too long before eating them!
Will stay a customer. The quality
