* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed and are not uniform in size. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Taste is what we believe in, because it’s what’s inside that counts. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Health benefits

Pears are naturally high in vitamins C and K, as well as copper, which act as antioxidants to protect our cells from damage from free radicals. They are an excellent source of dietary fiber, which is good for the heart. Studies have shown that fiber can lower levels of bad cholesterol. Because they are high in fiber and have a low glycemic index, pears make a smart snack for those with diabetes. They can also protect us from varying types of cancer. In addition to binding to cholesterol, the fiber in pears can also bind to and help remove cancer-causing chemicals in the colon, thus reducing risk of colon cancer. Doctors generally consider pears to be a hypoallergenic fruit because they are less likely than other fruits to produce an allergic response when eaten. For this reason, they are usually on of the first fruit to be given to infants.
