If you fight over getting to be Miss Scarlet on mystery dinner night (and I don’t mean mystery meat night – I can’t imagine why you are here if you are the kind of person that has a mystery meat night) then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★★

Bright red skin with white flesh

AROMA Rating: ★★★★½

Strong, sugary and floral

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★☆

Soft and juicy, slightly grainy but with a cool mouth feel

TASTE Rating: ★★★★½

Sweet and flowery with lots of personality and complexity

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★½

This is a creamy, floral pear with beautiful skin and flesh. Generally being likened to a pear isn’t particularly flattering, akin to being called plump and disproportionate, but if I was being compared to a Starkrimson I would say thank you and smile for the rest of the day.
