There’s more to pears than meets the eye – there are summer, autumn and winter pears, dessert pears, cider pears (for juice production) and cooking pears (for compote). And then there is a type of dessert pear which has a particularly delicate skin, also known as a butter pear. Like apples, pears also belong to the Malinae subtribe within the rose family (Rosaceae).

Pears originate – so we believe – from Caucasus and Anatolia. Today, they are grown in both the northern and southern hemispheres - provided it is warm and the soil is full of nutrients. The main cultivation areas – in addition to China (c. 40% of global production) – are Italy, the USA, Spain, Argentina, Japan, Turkey, France, Ukraine, Chile, South Africa and also Germany.


  • Pears have one of the highest fibre contents of all fruits, at an average of 6 grams per pear. As a reference: the human body requires between 25-30 grams of fibre each day.
  • Pears are easy to digest and are good for children and anyone with a sensitivity to acidic foods
  • The benefit of pears? They make you feel sated quickly.
