I grow the following red fleshed pears: Summer Blood Birne, Rotkotting Frau 
Oster, Verbelu, Sanguinole, Bloodpeer, Joey's Red Flesh and Blutbirne. I do not 
think any of them could be used for cooking. They ripen over different times, 
from August to early October,  but none of them keep and none of them are  firm 
enough for cooking it seems to me.

I have a Summer Blute Birne that will only occasionally fruit (I am in a
lower chill area and it needs more winter chill than I usually have-) When
it fruited, it was a very tasty pear. The climate may make a difference in
flavor.

I had one called Summer Blood Birne.  I never was able to get it to fruit 
for me and gave up on it.  The person I had received the wood from said it 
wasn't all that great anyway.  It is listed in the source book as "Good for 
fresh eating and drying."  Named 300 years ago for its red flesh and juice.

I have a friend looking for a cooking pear.  She is Dutch.  She said the one
she knows has red flesh, or maybe it turns red when cooked.  Any suggestions
of what would be available in the US?
