On a cold Tuesday night my employer sent me home with a beautiful LaFrance pear. Her friend lives next to a pear orchard and had sent her a boxful, so she gave me one as I was leaving for the day.
Just look at the size of that thing!!! If I were to buy this fruit at the groceries, it would have cost me a cool $10 each and I kid you not! That's just how expensive fruits are here!
