About This Food

Description

Pears, kin to apples, have been cultivated as early as 2000 B.C and are grown domestically in California, Oregon, and Washington.

The four principle varieties of pear available include Anjou, Bartlett, Bosc and Comice, each with its own distinct flavor, appearance and availability.

Pears are an excellent source of fiber and a good source of vitamin C.

Selecting & Storing

Because pears are picked unripe, choose those with smooth skins that are free of soft spots. Ripe pears will yield to gentle pressure and can be kept in the crisper of the refrigerator.
