a very good source of soluble and insoluble fibre...

and that sandy-ness is what gives it a texture.. crunchy-ness missing
in other pears...

NIDHAN JI.. cultivate a taste for this, buy, let it sit on kitchen
counter for few days, when just soft wash well and bite in... your
body will tell you: thanks... and then you can thank me, Ha
ha :) :)

lowers cholesterol because of soluble fibre... if taken regularly....

Thanks Ushadi for recipe, I will try to find out if it is available somewhere in the market, as I am sure it is never sold here in Punjab and Haryana
