Pear Facts

There are over 5,000 varieties of pears grown throughout the world. 🇫🇷 France is known for its superior pears and in the 🇺🇸 United States most of the crop comes from California, Oregon and Washington. Mother Nature protected the easily bruised pear by making it better when picked while still hard. Unlike most fruit, pears improve in both flavor and texture after it’s picked.

Crostini
