Pears, Beurre Bosc

Mario & Angelo Giacosa


New season, freshly picked Beurre Bosc Pears from David Cox and his team at Monticello Estate, near Stanthorpe.

Bosc pears are medium to large in size and are oblong in shape with a rounded bottom that gradually tapers to an elongated neck and a slender green-brown stem. The thick skin is golden tan and is covered in rough, brown russeting with some mottling. The ivory to off-white flesh is firm, dense, and crisp with an intense honeyed aroma and has a central, soft core encasing a few small black-brown seeds. When ripe, Bosc pears are juicy, crunchy, and have a very sweet flavor with notes of woodsy spice.

The farm operates using sustainable agricultural methods which includes many innovative developments which keep it at the forefront of sustainable agriculture. These methods include the implementation of regenerative land management strategies.

These ecological farming strategies include, but are not limited to:

  • The use of dry farming methods in the orchard.
  • The restriction of the use of non sustainable farm products.
  • The retention of large areas of the property as natural bushland
