SLH Fragrant Pear

Fragrant pears are small in size and are round to oval in shape with long, straight, green-brown stems. The smooth, waxy, and thin skin has a matte, yellow-green base and is covered in red blushing and prominent lenticels or pores. The flesh is crisp, moist, firm, and ivory to cream-colored encasing a few black-brown seeds in a central core. Fragrant pears live up to their name with a strong, floral aroma and when ripe, they are crunchy, juicy, and sweet.

Health Benefits :
Pears provides small amounts of folate, provitamin A, and niacin. Folate and niacin are important for cellular function and energy production, while provitamin A supports skin health and wound healing

Pears are also a rich source of important minerals, such as copper and potassium. Copper plays a role in immunity, cholesterol metabolism, and nerve function, whereas potassium aids muscle contractions and heart function.

What’s more, these fruits are an excellent source of polyphenol antioxidants, which protect against oxidative damage. Be sure to eat the whole pear, as the peel boasts up to six times more polyphenols than the flesh
