Bosc pears are medium to large in size and are oblong in shape with a rounded bottom that tapers to a thinner neck and a slender green-brown stem. The thick skin is golden tan and is covered in rough brown russet. The flesh is off-white, firm, dense, and crisp with an intense honey aroma. When ripe, Bosc pears are juicy, crunchy, and have a very sweet flavor.
