Pears this week come in five varieties from two local orchards and away:

• Seckel pears — aka candy pears — are small and very sweet, so they are great for eating and for cooking. They come by the piece from away.

• Potomac pears are buttery, mild and sweet and are a cross between an anjou and a moonglow and can be described as most similar to an anjou pear. Potomac pears come by the piece from Samascott in Kinderhook, NY

• Shenandoah pears are described as rich and sweet and most closely similar to a bartlett pear. Shenandoahs come from Samascott by the piece. 

• Organic asian hosui pears are golden and round, mild, and crunchy and come by the piece from away
