Making Smoothies with Pears

Pears are medium sized tree fruits that typically are oval bottomed with a narrow top. Pears range in color from brown with a green tint, to yellow-brown or gold, or red-green or red-yellow. Pears can range in texture and flavor depending on the variety. Some pears, such as the green anjou, have smooth skin, with firm, juicy flesh, while other pears, such as bosc, have rough textured skin and firm or soft texture when ripe; with noticeable sweetness.
