A pear is an edible fruit native to Europe and Asia. A pear has an unique shape. The skin and white flesh is edible, but the kernels in the middle aren't. A pear tastes sweet, juicy and is soft on the tongue. You get a grainy feeling like a sugary sand that dissolves in your mouth. Pears are mostly used as a garnish in cocktail recipes.
