|Product - Pears|
.Red Clapp pears have been described as having a red blush, but as can be seen in this photo, they can also develop a deep red colored skin. They are the reddest of all pears, and have a white flesh. The flavor of these red Clapp pears is very similar to Bartlett pears, but they don't seem to get as soft as a Bartlett. One reference we saw indicated that these red Clapp pears were developed in Massachusetts around 1850. They have a relatively short storage life.
