Coscia pears: 5 good reasons to eat them

15 April 2021

The coscia pear is a summer variety that is grown on the plain of Catania, Italy. Here, thanks to the warmth of the Sicilian sun and the fertile soil on the slopes of Mount Etna, this thirst-quenching, low-calorie fruit acquires its unique flavour

The Pera Coscia is a typical variety of the Etna valleys. The small size of this pear makes it a practical solution for a quick snack, even on-the-go, or as a sweet and refreshing end to a meal.

The Coscia Pear is harvested in July, and it is no coincidence that this typical summer fruit is very thirst-quenching and rich in minerals and simple sugars. In short, the Coscia Pear is an ideal natural snack to recover from the heat of the summer days, and its pocket size makes it practical to carry around.

If you still don't want to bite into a fresh, juicy Coscia Pear, we at 3moretti will give you 5 reasons why you should eat them.

1. Natural pocket-sized snacks

Coscia Pears are compact and naturally pocket-sized. They are the ideal solution to take with you when you're out and about, when you're hungry, or just want a fresh, thirst-quenching snack. For example, they are an ideal snack after sport because, thanks to the presence of vitamins and mineral salts, they help to replenish the substances lost during physical activity. They are a great idea for a sweet and healthy break time that can also be taken under the umbrella.

2. A tasty ally in the fight against tooth decay

The pulp of Coscia Pears, grainy, crunchy and low in complex sugars, helps maintain healthy teeth. In fact, chewing on these delicious Sicilian fruits also helps fight cavities. What if you don't have a toothbrush? Put a Coscia Pear in your bag and munch on it after meals, it will help clean your teeth.

3. Helps improve tanning

Coscia Pears contain betacarotene. This substance has photoprotective properties, i.e. it protects the skin from the sun's rays by reducing its sensitivity. If you want a healthy, even tan and want to avoid sunburn, don't forget your sun cream and eat Coscia Pears. Take them with you in your beach bag. They will satisfy you with their fresh taste and your skin will thank you too!

4. An ideal “dessert” for dieters

You know when you're on a diet and that craving for dessert comes up? Now, with Coscia Pears, you won't have to give that up. In fact, this variety of pear consists only of simple sugars and is also rich in fibre (3.8g per 100g - www.crea.gov.it). Nibbling on a Coscia Pear will not compromise your figure and will also increase your sense of satiety.

5. For tasty and unusual pairings at the dinner table

The Coscia pear is suitable for eating as a snack or a tasty end to a meal, but it is also the ideal fruit for creating unusual and tasty pairings at the dinner table. In fact, its white, grainy, water-rich and delicate pulp goes perfectly with semi-mature or spicy cheeses, perhaps made from goat's milk.


What was the saying??
“Don't let the farmer know how good the cheese is with pears...”
