We NEVER sell imported pears ever!
Pears are hypoallergenic - less likely to cause allergic reactions - & high in colon-clearing dietary fiber.
The fresh, buttery fruit also contains free radical-fighting copper & vitamin C.
Pears are also a cholesterol lowering & heart healthy fruit due to its potassium content
Try poaching some peeled pears in a sweeter white wine such as pinot gris or riesling, along with a good amount of sugar, a cinnamon stick, some lemon or orange peel & a little honey, until the pears are tender... You might want to keep them whole, or slice them lengthways & scoop out the cores.
Packam pears are sweet & less acidic than apples, making them a great introductory fruit for babies.
