Pear Facts

There’s over 3,000 known varieties of pears… plus a few more cool facts

Selecting a pear for ripeness

With some fruits it’s easy to tell when they’re ripe and ready to eat. Color and scent are often great indicators of how much sugar developed in a fruit as it hung on the tree. Pears are unlike most fruit in that their sugars continue to develop after they’ve been picked so color may make for a beautiful pear to display but based on variety may not be a good indicator of the fruits quality.
