Pears are a yellow or green fruit with a rounded shape that becomes narrower towards the stalk. They ripen best at room temperature and are picked just before ripening. There are many species of pears and most are valued for their edible fruit. Others are cultivated as ornamental trees.
Just one medium-sized pear provides 6 grams of fiber. A diet high in fiber can help reduce the risk for diabetes. Pears are fat-free and low in calories and can help to detox the body.
Temperature:Pears can be refrigerated at the very low temperature of 29 degrees before they are sent to grocery stores. At home, the optimal temperature to keep them at is 34 degrees.
