Abate Pear

HK$160

Estimated price per piece

Pere Abate are richer in fructose and other simple sugars than most pears, and are therefore ideal when one needs a burst of energy. They are also a good source of fiber, mineral salts, and malic and citric acid, which are antioxidant. Though one can do other things with them, the classic Italian way of enjoying a pear is with a moderately firm wedge of Pecorino Toscano or Sardo (not Romano, which is much saltier)

Though one can do other things with them, the classic Italian way of enjoying a pear is with a moderately firm wedge of Pecorino Toscano or Sardo (not Romano, which is much saltier). Indeed, there's a saying, Non far sapere al contadino quanto é buona la pera col pecorino -- don't let the farmer know how good a pear is with pecorino, presumably because if the farmer ever cottoned on to the combination, the supply of pears and cheese would dry up.
