About

Edible pears come in two basic varieties; Asian and European. Colours range from a greenish-yellow to red and rust, and the flesh is soft, sweet and somewhat grainy. You can tell a pear is ripe when the flesh yields to a gentle thumb-press.

History suggests pears were first found in south-east Asian regions. While the fruit was first cultivated in Europe around 1000BC and in China around 1100BC, North American pear trees didn't appear until around 1620.
