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.
