Pear is a very soft fruit that grows on a tree. It comes in a variety of colors, so it is generally recognized for its shape instead. The term ‘pear–shaped’ owes its namesake to this fruit. Despite its many varieties, pear is fairly unremarkable.
Pear has a very ‘mild’ flavor. It’s better than apple, because the skin is easier to penetrate. Pear’s flavor is good, but unexciting. It serves as a good entry–level food for anyone new to eating.
Pear became an official snack on May 6th 2012.
