These fruit have a mild, delicious flavour, sweet with a soft texture. They're often eaten on their own or used to enhance deserts.

Most fruits have healthful benefits for their selection of phytonutrients, in the case of pears, a lot of these compounds are found in the fruit's skin. So, if you can bear it, munch down on the whole thing.
