Pyrus communis 'Blanquilla' is a popular variety of pear that is prized for its sweet, juicy flesh and delicate flavor. This variety is believed to have originated in Spain and is now widely cultivated in many parts of the world, including Europe, North America, and Asia.

The Blanquilla pear has a medium to large size and a distinctive bell-like shape with a slightly elongated neck. The skin of the pear is thin and smooth, with a greenish-yellow color that may have a slight blush of red on the side facing the sun. The flesh is crisp and juicy, with a sweet, slightly tangy flavor that is often compared to that of a pineapple.

Blanquilla pears are typically harvested in late summer to early fall, and they are best when eaten fresh. They can also be used in a variety of culinary applications, including baking, poaching, and canning. When selecting Blanquilla pears, look for fruits that are firm but yield slightly to pressure, with no visible signs of bruising or damage.

Overall, Pyrus communis 'Blanquilla' is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a flavorful and versatile pear that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways.
