Pears are one of the ancient fruits. Unlike most fruit, pears improve in both texture and flavour after they are picked.
Store unripe pears at room temperature, ripe pears may be refrigerated.
Pears come in their own nutritious, edible packaging, which makes them an easy choice for consumers on the go.
As a fruit, fresh pears offer a natural, quick source of energy, due to the presence of natural sugars. Pears are nutrient dense - they are high in fiber, a good source of vitamin C and potassium.
Potassium is an important mineral lost easily through dehydration or perspiration. It is necessary for maintaining heartbeat, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, as well as carbohydrate and protein metabolism.
Pears are a great thirst quencher. They are also a great source of fibre which is important for gut health as well as reducing high LDL cholesterol levels.
