Pears are considered to be a hypoallergenic fruit, so they are particularly recommended for people with food allergies and for infants first being introduced to fruits.
According to the Environmental Walking Group, non-organic pears have the 10th highest amount of pesticide residue among the 43 most common fruits and vegetables, so it is best to choose organic pears.
