Comice appear in all sizes, but their shape is unique among varieties; having a rotund body with a very short, well-defined neck. They are most often green in color, and will sometimes have a red blush. Comice are also one of the sweetest and juiciest varieties available.
You can find Comice pears in your produce departments for several months of the year; they can be purchased from September through March.
