I love these red pears. In part because they're only here fleetingly. I have to be quick to spot them, buy them and eat them. I find they have about three or four days of average firmness, and then suddenly, without any signs, they are soft, with a deep sweet smell and about to go bad. And I eat them all in a day and say I'm only ever going to buy one at a time in the future. But the basket of smooth red curves is too hard to resist and I buy the basket again, if I can.
