While the growth in demand for pears has been relatively modest compared to some other fruits, the health conscious are beginning to pick up on the unique range of benefits this fruit can offer, including high levels of anti-inflammatory compounds, vitamin C and vitamin K.
Ensuring that fruit arrives in the retail setting with its texture, flavour and health benefits intact is essential to gain the best possible prices.
The best way to manage the ripening process is to control the amount of ethylene that pears are exposed to once harvested. This significantly increases the time available for transit without any detriment to the final eating experience.
It’s Fresh! Ethylene Control regulates, rather than removes, ethylene gas from the fruit’s atmosphere, allowing controlled maturation while maintaining the fruit's natural protection against pathogens and rotting.
