Pear Nutrients and Health Benefits

Pears in BasketPear fruit is pretty popular throughout the world. Its Scientific Genus name is Pyrus and there are about 30 different species.

Another weird thing about our Pear tree is that it’s blooming and growing just fine even better than before, while our apple, apricot, and plum trees are suffering from some kind of a problem. Many people claimed that for the last two years this problem is either nation-wide in USA or even world-wide. Some say it’s because of frost and some say it’s because of the disappearance of bees. I think it’s both of those issues plus something that we probably don’t know about yet.

It’s very interesting how people prefer to eat pears at different ripening times. Some like to eat pears when they are fully ripened which is when they are very yellow, very sweet, juicy, and pretty soft. I like to eat pears when they are still green, pretty sweet, not very juicy, and pretty hard. Have you noticed how the seeds in pears taste yummier than in apples?

Also, as a reminder this is an updated post for my earlier Pears Nutrients and Benefits article post.

One Raw Medium Pear can contain these Nutrients: Continue reading
