Golden pear is a variety of pear, sometimes referred to as Asian pear, that originated from East Asia over 3000 years ago. Split into 2 major varieties, one from China and one from Japan, they are characterized by their flatter, rounder shape and juicy, crispy taste. They are traditionally associated in Asian culture with grace and nobility.
The golden pear made its first appearance in North America during the 1800s. It was mostly used ornamentally until people realized that the golden pear was immune to a common crop disease that would regularly wipe out the European pear trees, so several hybrid species were created to take advantage of its natural immunity. Golden pears saw their biggest adoption during the Gold Rush on the west coast, where they were brought over by Asian immigrants; some maintain that is where the term “golden pear” stems from.
Golden pears are some of the most expensive fruits available today, due to a couple of major factors; first, the golden pear has to be tended by hand, in contrast to the European pear which can be handled mostly by mechanical means. Another critical factor is the optimal ripeness of the fruit- it doesn’t improve after it is picked. The European pear improves as it ripens and softens after harvest, while the golden pear is at its best immediately.

Wood wick candles can be intimidating at first but they operate just like any regular candle! Here are answers to some commonly asked questions to help you feel comfortable with burning a wood wick candle.
Are wood wick candles safe?
Yes, wood wick are derived from natural resources (wood) and are much safer than the traditional cotton wick which are often coated with harsh chemicals!
What are the benefits of wood wick candles?
Wood wicks provide a soothing crackle to emulate a gentle fireplace! They also release a stronger scent throw without being overwhelming.
Are there any restrictions on burning wood wick candles?
The National Candle Association advises that no candle should be burnt for more than 4 hours in one sitting. It is also recommended that one should stop burning the candle when there is 1/2 of wax left. Never leave the candle unattended and keep away from children and pets.
Black smoke is coming out of my candle, what do I do?
All candles (not just wood wick candles) will product black smoke if you burn them for long enough. Simply trim the wick to 1/8 inch before each burn to get rid of the smoke. Trimming the wick ensures the candle is safe for the environment and makes it last longer.
How do I light a wood wick candle?
Simply light the candle from edge and watch it catch.
I accidentally cut my wood wick too short and now it won’t light, what do I do?
Don’t worry this happens to the best of us! If your candle lights for a short period of time, simply use a napkin to soak up the melted wax and it’ll go back to normal. If your candle is not lighting at all, scrape off some of the wax around the wood and try lighting it again. The wax is the fuel to the wick, and there is just too much fuel for the candle to catch.
