Red Bartlett Pears have a traditional pear shape and reddish (sometimes pinkish) skin with yellow speckles. As they ripen, their colour changes from a dark red to a lighter, brighter red.

The taste and texture are virtually the same as for Yellow Bartlett Pears, with the only real difference being the skin colour.

The flesh is soft, buttery and very juicy. The flesh is white.

    At first blush, you might be tempted to ask who's the bright spark who picked April for Zucchini Bread Day? Well, zucchini is harvested from November to May in Australia (depending on the part of Australia), with April being bumper crop time down under. In the northern hemisphere, the reason for having Zucchini Bread Day now would be to make it at a time when you can appreciate it.
