Pear - Fruit


Pears have a distinctive bell shape fruit. Some pears have knobby lobes at the base of the fruit while others are smooth at the base. The skin of the fruit ranges in color from green, yellow, red, brown, pink, or a combination of these colors.  Pear flesh is white and juicy and grainy in texture. Bartlett pears are shown in this picture.
