SHOP­PERS of­ten over­look pears at the shops but they should give them a go as they are a lovely fruit to eat.

Both pack­ham and corella va­ri­eties of pears are rea­son­ably priced at the mo­ment as they are plen­ti­ful and com­ing into sea­son.

Pears on sale in Syd­ney gen­er­ally come from grow­ing re­gions in Vic­to­ria and NSW.

I like to buy pears very green and hard and let them ripen at home.

The per­fect time to eat a pear is when it is just turn­ing.

The fruit should give a lit­tle when you touch it and taste beau­ti­ful and sweet.

An­other fruit that is easy to en­joy as a snack and is good value is gala ap­ples.

Ap­ples are kept in con­trolled at­mos­phere stor­age so they are avail­able all year round.

Other fresh pro­duce to keep a look out for this week in­clude ruby grape­fruit, baby beet­root, cos let­tuce and shal­lots.

PEARS Cost: From $2.90/kg
