Featured Video - Pears

A brief introduction

Pears seem to be the fruit that always appears in still life paintings, yet is often absent from the family fruit bowl. A good pear is soft and juicy and packed with fibre. I say therefore, persevere with pears. Pears are better if picked before they are completely ripe. The most common variety of pears are the Beurre Bosc, William and Packham. (see individual listings). The majority of pears sold today are unripe. Ripe pears often look unappealing as they can bear a few marks. Pears ripen from the inside out. In Australia there's a pear available all year round.

Note: The pear's levels of salicylates drop to safe/negligible amounts if the fruit is peeled.
