September- November I Paris, France
Autumn kicks off with apples and pears. We're starting with Williams Pears, the classic teardrop variety with thin skins and a butter-like texture. Natoora source theirs straight from Fabien, whose family have been growing fruit since the 19th century. In the 1950s his father ignored calls to commercialise his growing methods and instead turned his attention to the soil: he stopped weeding the orchards, refused to use chemical sprays and let biodiversity thrive. His son Fabien’s pears reflect this dedication.
