The politics of pears

Pears are politicians of the food world: they aim to please everyone. They can be eaten hard and crisp, with a slightly tart flavor, or allowed to age into a soft, creamy texture with super-sweetness. Pears can be found in shades of orange-yellow-brown-green-red blushed skins, to match any décor. I cast my vote for their versatility and promise of good things to come.
