Organic Taylor's Gold Pears

Regular price $41.99
Unit price

The Taylor's Gold pear can grow to be the largest of the pear varieties we tend and like the Warren is smooth fleshed and equally well suited to eating fresh and baking. Taylor's Gold pears are harvested in early September and often available until December. 

This variety was discovered in 1986 by Michael King-Turner in his Riwaka orchard near Nelson, New Zealand. It's believed to be a natural mutation of a Comice, but with its cinnamon-flecked skin and wide flare it may be a cross between a Bosc and a Comice. The Taylor's Gold is sweet, juicy, tender, and its speckled gold flush makes it as beautiful as it is delicious.

Our regenerative organic practices not only produce great fruit, but they also provide important ecosystem and climate benefits. We build soil health by composting, planting cover crops, and not tilling. The soil contains thriving communities of beneficial microbes and fungi that fertilize our trees. And we are fighting climate change by building the carbon storage capacity of our soil. Our orchards store an average of 29 tons of carbon per acre – that’s the equivalent of taking 1,488 passenger vehicles off the road for one year!

  • We ship nationwide via UPS Gold Standard Carbon Neutral Shipping
  • For fresh fruit and perishable items we aim for your shipment to spend no more than 2 days in transit. Due to this, items may not ship over the weekend. See shipping at checkout for estimated delivery date.
  • UPS does not ship to PO boxes

Our promise to you: if your order doesn't arrive fresh and if you or your recipients aren't delighted, we'll make it right.

The good ones are good.

First, let me say that my first love is the Warren Pears. I decided to give the Taylors a try. Most of my shipment was delicious - the fruit had a very delicate flavor and silky texture. Unfortunately the shipment was not consistent. There were a few fruit that had a rougher texture and not much pear flavor. I'm glad I tried them, but I still like the Warrens better.

New pear favorite

I have always ordered Warren pears but this time I decided to try the Taylor pears and they are just as delicious. Now I have 2 favorites!

Sooo good!

I’m halfway through my second order of Taylor’s Gold pears - delicious! I didn’t think any pear could compete with a Warren, which I love, but these Taylor’s Gold might win by a smidgen! I like the almost citrusy tang note with the Taylor’s - they are a sweet, honeyed pear like the Warren, but where the Warren has an even sweeter note of vanilla, the Taylor’s balances the honey with a little citrus burst at the end. Both are excellent pears. ❤️

One of the best pears ever.

Hard to find, delicious Taylor's Gold pears

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.
