Do Pears Contain Water & Potassium?
Pears are relatives of apples and are eaten in many of the same ways as apples. According to the CDC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pears have a unique shape and are especially succulent when soft. The texture is a result of starch being transformed into sugar after picking the pear. Pears are available year-round and primarily grow in California, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York and the Northwest United States. They are high in a number of essential nutrients, including potassium.
