Between damson and sloe??? Ever tried sloes raw before you learnt to recognise them? Spitting feathers for an hour!!!! That was on a local walk where we encountered so many fruits growing in the hedgerows that we certainly got our 5 a day that walk. Everything from blackberry, sloe, damson, probably bullace, various types of plums and different types of apples. Even a few pear trees but I really do not like pears.
It's something about the texture of them I don't like. I actually gag on them when I try to eat them. I know I'm weird about food sometimes.I laughed about the sloes but pears, ripe pears are delicious, and absolutely wonderful dried. They become almost like chewing a toffee
Thanks, but no. Ours are a variety of grapes. They’re vines that are grown either on trellises are on a fence row. They also often grow wild with the vines climbing trees. We eat them raw, make jelly from them, and also wine.
Try a different varietal. There are nearly as many varietals of pears as there are of apples. And like apples, they range in texture from soft and mushy to firm. From a minimum juiceless to dripping down your shirt. From sweet to tart.It's something about the texture of them I don't like. I actually gag on them when I try to eat them.

Availability in the grocery store is pretty much a given here but regarding the selection we’re in the same boat: generally only two varietals available. Either the common Bartlet, or a large golden Asian Pear. That said, if the point is to decide whether or not you want to grow a pear tree in your garden you should probably be sampling those from local friends and nurseries with them. That way if you find one you do like you’ll know it’ll thrive there.Unfortunately supermarket choice isn't as wide as the varietals available. Lucky if they haves any pears in stock at all round here.
