Which one would you pick?
The brown one or the red one?
I remember many boys in my school would talk to the prettiest girls wearing pink ribbons. Those plainer girls had no suitors.
So when I choose my puppies - I choose the ugliest prune faced one. When I choose a bitter gourd - I would choose the one with a little dent. Just me maybe for decision making.
I chose the brown one this time and let my friends take the red ones.
Underneath the brown fairly unaatractive skin is a succulent pear - just sweet enough and extremely juicy. Many are prejudiced against it. Even the skin can be eaten. So no need to peel. In Europe it is called a Kaiser pear. Sometimes it is also referred to as the Aristocratic pear.
A pear beyond comparision. Not available yet in Malaysia.
