Rosemarie pears are small in size, averaging 5-7 centimeters in length, and are symmetrical in shape with a rounded, bell-shaped base tapering to a short neck with a slender light green stem. The smooth, thin skin transforms from green to yellow when ripe and is covered in red blushing, crimson lenticels or pores, and has a slightly waxy sheen. When ripe, Rosemarie pears are crisp with sweet and tangy flavors.
Rosemarie pears are most commonly enjoyed fresh as a snack, as an accompaniment in winter salads, and used as a garnish for savory soups. They can also be used in oatmeal, on cereal, in pancakes or waffles, layered in sandwiches, paninis, and quesadillas, chopped into salsa or used as a chocolate fondue item.
They will keep 2-4 days when stored at room temperature and a couple of weeks when stored in a perforated bag in the refrigerator.
