[From now on] Pear
Unlike Japanese pears, pears have a unique vertical shape.
In Japan, it was imported in the Meiji era and tried to grow it, but it did not take root because it did not match the humid climate of Japan.
In recent years, it has become more common to see it in supermarkets, but compared to Japanese pears, the sales area is smaller.
Recently, many popular varieties such as La France and Le Lectier have appeared on the market. This is a characteristic of pears, but they are often not suitable for eating right after they are sold, so they basically need to be ripened.
Sometimes it is left in a ripe state. If you look at the description, you may find it, so please be careful.
After buying it, touch the root part of the stem a little and if it feels soft, it's ready to eat.
Although it is similar in nutritional value to Japanese pears, it contains a large amount of polyphenols, which can be expected to have effects such as cancer prevention.
