They are succulent and juicy, a true pleasure to eat. Regular irrigation during the growing season is an important part of Comice pear tree care. Although the trees are fairly resistant to drought, you’ll want to water to get better tasting fruit. Growing Comice pear trees is fairly easy, and the trees don’t require much in the way of additional maintenance if appropriately planted. You’ll need some patience; you’ll have to wait a few short years after planting for the tree to produce fruit. Comice Pears are green but display pink streaks as they ripen. The best way to check for ripening is to apply thumb pressure near the stem. Comice Pears have been called "the Christmas pear" and are divine to serve raw or paired with cheese and wine. Comice Pears are delicate and should be cooked in a gentle manner, such as poaching.
