asian pears

Pears are a great fall-time treat for Full Belly farmers. Harvested in the after many of our other fruits are done (like peaches and melons), pears are a great source of dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Full Belly cultivates a small number of Bartlett Pear trees. Unripe pears should be kept on the counter top until soft. Pears can also be kept in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them, up to one week. 

Full Belly’s Asian Pears are a tasty fall treat. The varieties we grow, Hosui, Shinseiki, and 20th Century, are crisp, refreshing, and should be gobbled up right away. Asian pears are the oldest known cultivated pear and are a great source of fiber and vitamin C. Please handle Asian pears carefully- they bruise quite easily! They may be refrigerated for a few days.
