There’s something incredibly refreshing about eating a pear. If you have a sweet tooth, for instance, you might love how sweet these delectable fruits can get.
Or if you love juice, you’ll appreciate how juicy some pear varieties are. Our focus today is on pear juice, and which are the juiciest pears.
Read on, and we’ll tell you which type of pears to get if juice is what you want. We’ll also throw in some advice on how to make an easy glass of homemade pear juice.
Quick Answer: What are the Juiciest Pears?
According to USA Pears, some of the juiciest pears available are Bartlett, Red Bartlett, and Starkrimson pears.
The least juicy pears are Seckel, Bosc, and Forelle pears. This doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re not juicy at all, just that they’re firmer than the juiciest pear varieties.
Pear Types and their Differences
There are several popular varieties of pears, and each one has its own unique flavor. The level of juiciness varies from pear to pear, too.
Bartlett, Red Bartlett, and Starkrimson are the top three in terms of juiciness. These are also sweet pears, which makes them perfect for eating raw.
But there’s a whole range of pears out there to try. If you prefer a firm pear that’s not so sweet, consider Bosc pears.
And if you want something that’s in the middle of the road in terms of sweetness and softness, choose a Red Anjou.
What if you like a firmer pear that’s still sweet? Then the Concord pear is exactly what you need.

Bonus: How to Make Homemade Pear Juice
We found a pretty simple pear juice recipe online. All it requires is a couple pears, sugar, water, and a blender.
To ensure you’re using vegan sugar, though, consider looking for organic sugar. Some sugars are processed using animal-based filters, which is not the case with organic options.
The amount of sugar you can use depends on how sweet you want to your juice to be. If you prefer sweeter juice, use more sugar.
Once you’ve got your ingredients, you can slice up a pear. These slices will go into your blender, along with your organic sugar and water.
You can watch a video demonstrating how to throw this recipe together below.
The bottom line is, when it comes to pears, you have choices. There are pear varieties to suit a range of personal preferences, from sweetness to juiciness.
There are even pears that are naturally firmer, which is perfect for people who prefer their fruits to have a little more texture.
We personally suggest trying every pear variety you can. You could even try making juice out of the different kinds to see which flavor you like the most.
