Quite often sold as an Anju Pear, the correct name is Buerre Bosc and is a sweet, buttery and juicy European pear. Personally, I think "Poire d'Anju" has a much more romanitc sound to it.
The Buerre Bosc was discovered in the early 19th century, and is of either French or Belgian origin. The name comes from the then-conventional naming system, where the first word denotes a characteristic (�butter�), and the second word refers to its origin or propagator (M. Bosc, the director of the Paris Botanical Gardens). (French Kiss texture added)
