Also known as Kaiser pears, this aromatic, succulent pear is easily recognisable by its long, tapered neck and rich golden-brown hue. The flesh of the Bosc pear is dense, crisp and creamy, and boasts a sweet buttery taste when fully ripe.
Health benefits: A fruit rich in both soluble and insoluble fibre, the Bosc pear can help lower cholesterol and promote digestive health – especially useful for those wishing to reduce belly bloat and improve bowel movement regularity.
Have one of these as a snack before you start your workout – the natural simple carbohydrates in the pear gives you a quick energy boost to get you going. A hypoallergenic fruit, it’s safe to introduce this as a puree to babies.
How to prepare: With its firm texture, the Bosc pear holds its shape and is ideal for cooking or baking. Oven-poach in wine for an elegant dessert. It’s equally delightful when used in a decadently buttery crumble, sophisticated glazed tart, or simple teacake. It pairs perfectly with cheese as well, so enjoy it on a cheese platter as an indulgent afternoon treat.
What to look for: Gently press a finger into the top of the part where the stem joins the fruit. If it yields easily, the pear is ripe. Don’t buy pears that are soft anywhere else as that’s an indication that the pears are overripe and the flesh may be mushy and mealy.
How to ripen pears: Store the pears at room temperature. To speed up the ripening process, place the pears in a paper bag with a ripe apple or banana. The ethylene given out by these fruits will induce the pears to ripen faster.

With an earthy, sweet flavour and long tuberous root, it comes as no surprise that the parsnip is closely related to the carrot. This fleshy tuber is chock-full of vitamins, essential minerals and dietary fibre.
A sweet alternative to the regular Russet or Yukon gold, this humble root lends itself to a plethora of different cooking methods. Great as a casserole dish or simply steamed, this spud is no dud when it comes to health-boosting benefits.
Chilli is also known as chilli peppers. The substances that give chilli their intensity when ingested or applied topically are capsaicin and several related chemicals, collectively called capsaicinoids.
An apple cucumber gets its name because of its resemblance to a green apple. It has a crispy, juicy flesh, very sweet taste, and can be eaten without peeling the skin off. After it ripens, it develops soft prickles or spines that are white.
Black Knight carrots are readily distinguishable by their ink stained skin with variegations of orange and ivory blushing through from the root's core. The flesh's colour is a contrasting warm yellow.
Higher in beta carotene, and vitamins C and A than its green counterpart, red oak lettuce also provides a good proportion of fibre, folate and minerals. Enjoy this attractive, frilly leaf in salads, sandwiches and side dishes.
