The fruit comes in all colours - green, yellow, red and even black! With more than 2,000 species, the pear comes from the common pear tree (Pyrus communis L.) or the Chinese pear tree (Pyrus sinensis), a tree of the Rosaceae family. Known since ancient times, it is called ‘pirum’ in Latin. Its fragrance is like its flesh: grainy and juicy, crunchy and soft, velvety and slightly sweet.
It is the embodiment of Autumn. Its sweet, juicy fragrance accompanies the end of the long Summer days into Autumn and Winter. It warms the hearts of those with a sweet tooth.
