Chilean wild baby pears are not commercially grown but wild harvested throughout Chile. They have an intense Bartlett pear like flavor but are only about 2 inches high. They are delicious when served with a cheese course, sliced, or drained, patted dry and covered with chocolate. Also as an attractive addition to any cocktail.
