Pear Bite

Pear is one of the fruit you can add to your diet. It is a healthy fruit, like apple. Many people use it for their diet.

How about the nutrition?

Pears are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber, which helps the body to eliminate cholesterol and also protects against environmental toxins.
(An even better source of pectin is apples)

Pears are also a good source of potassium. Dried pears contain protein, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber.

Different types of pears are in season at different times of the year. Anjou pears, which are golden green and have a buttery, sweet flavor, are in season from October to May. Asian pears are yellow, sort of apple shaped and taste like a watermelon crossed with a potato. There are also bartlett pears that are best when they have turned yellow, but still have green flecks; they are summer pears that bruise very easily.

There are also red bartlett pears that are like normal bartletts, but they are red. Bosc pears have golden skin and have a spicy, aromatic flavor. Comice pears, thought to be the best in the world, are thick-skinned, green, juicy pears. Seckel pears are small pears that are great for snacks.

There are many kinds of pear. Just choose the one you like!
