Pears are one of the oldest fruits in the world. The fruit is juicy and sweet with a soft, buttery, somewhat grainy texture. The cream flesh of pears was once referred to as the “gift of the gods.” Pears also promote cardiovascular and colon health. Plant two different varieties for cross-pollination for heavier crops.
