forelle

 

 

Forelle: One of the smaller pear varieties, the Forelle usually has red freckles, or lenticles. Originating in the 1600's in Germany, their name means "Trout" in German. They possess a delicious sweet flavor, and a slightly crisp texture. Being somewhat smaller than most pears, they make an excellent snack. They are especially good when cooked.
