Carmen is from our new range of outstanding summer pears maturing well ahead of William bon Cretien, in January and the first week of February. These pears create opportunities to supply during the time which is currently being filled by imported fruit. The ripening of the varieties is staggered to provide continual supply over several weeks. All varieties show excellent storage and handling properties, with the red blush increasing with cool storage up to 30% of fruit surface on Turandot, Norma and Carmen.
