The Doyenne Du Comice was developed in France in the mid 1800's. It is widely grown on the west coast. It can be recognized by its bulbous shape and dimple underneath. It has a green color when firm and turns light yellow as it ripens. When ripe it will have a wonderfully smooth and juicy texture with a lemony-pear taste.
