Some of the best pears you'll ever eat come from Seattle's Metropolitan Market. Dubbed The Holiday Pear, these seasonal fruits come from the Rogue River Valley in Medford, Oregon. They've been grown there for three generations by the Meyers family. What makes them so special? It's mainly the climate of the Rogue Valley, which sees warm days and cool nights. The result is an incredibly soft, sweet pear that you can eat with a spoon. True to its name, you'll only find The Holiday Pear late in the year, starting November 15. Besides eating the pears straight up, there are also easy ways to dress them up as the perfect appetizer for your holiday get-together.
