Bartlett's are the U.S. consumer's preferred variety, with nearly 90 percent of consumers preferring Bartlett's over any other pear. Pears are exceedingly nutritious, and Bartlett pears, California's most popular pear, are an excellent source of dietary fiber with 4 grams per pear, plus potassium, Vitamin C, and selenium, which is thought to reduce the risk of prostate cancer, as well as lutein, a plant chemical that helps protect your eyes. Additionally a pear has only 100 calories, no cholesterol and is virtually fat free. But best of all, they taste good, and, as French women know, one of the secrets to not getting fat is to eat food that tastes good so that one enjoys every single bite of a small portion.

Pears are often purchased before they are fully ripe, but the consumer can finish the ripening process by putting green, firm Bartlett pears in a bowl kept at room temperature. There, they will slowly ripen and color to perfection. Green Bartlett pears will turn yellow and soften within 4 or 5 days, while those already turning will take only 2 to 3 days. Once the pears have ripened, they can be stored in the refrigerator for almost a week to keep them fresh.
