Pears are a very good source of dietary fibre. They are rich in sugars and contain small amounts of phosphorus and vitamins A and C. Pear Trees are a favourite for the home gardeners because they are sweet tasting and perhaps the easiest fruit tree to grow. Pears have far fewer problems with plant diseases and pests than other fruit trees. They just grow and produce year after year with very little fuss or attention
