With their sweet taste and rich texture, pears are both versatile and delicious. Beautifully bell-shaped and delightfully thin-skinned, they make welcomed additions to salads and pureed soups. Or use them to create our recipe for Pear Pumpkin Spice Cake

Choose Bartlett, D’Anjou, Starkrimson or Bosc.

Tip: Keep unripe pears in a basket at room temperature or wrap in paper to ripen. Once they yield to gentle pressure, they are ready to eat.

An excellent source of vitamins, tomatoes contain powerful antioxidants that help protect the body from free radicals. But it's the beautiful hues, terrific textures and fantastic flavors that define these old-fashioned favorites. Use them to create colorful salads, serve atop sandwiches or burgers, or drizzle with balsamic and enjoy with cheese and crusty bread.
 
Pick from Marvel Stripe, Purple Cherokee, Black Russian, Brandywine and more.
 
Tip: Pick heirlooms that are somewhat firm to the touch, keep at room temperature, and enjoy within a couple days.
