The color of certain fruits or vegetables can sometimes be used to identify either the ripeness or the flavor of them. It can be confusing, however, since different varieties of certain types of fruit can have completely different colors.
But are certain types of pears different colors? Can pears be red?
Yes, they can be!
Generally speaking, red pears are simply natural variations of the green pears that are more commonly available, and are going to taste the same. Also, they may not go through the exact same color change (green to yellow) as they ripen.
