  • Smallest of Pears

Shasta Produce Buyer
Forelles are one of the smallest varieties of pears.

Buyers Take:

Forelle pears may be smaller than other pears, but they make up for it in sweet flavor and beautiful appearance. Known as a great "snacking" pear, Forelles are as wonderful to eat as they are beautiful to see on display!

Forelles are one of the smallest varieties of pears, a little larger than Seckel pears. Their symmetrical body, often bell-shaped, begins with a small round base that tapers evenly to a short neck. Because of their small size, Forelles are typically not the best choice for most recipes; the exception being those that showcase the Forelle's unique characteristics, like in colorful salads and other fresh uses.
