Real food, Real clay

There are only ten minutes in the life of a pear when it is perfect to eat.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

one real, two ceramic pears

Here luxuriant trees are always in their prime
pomegranates and pears, and apples glowing red...
from Aristotle's Garden of Alcinous

seedless and with seeds

100% natural clay and fruit with no waxy exteriors

 between persimmon and precision.   
How to choose

persimmons. This is precision.
Ripe ones are soft and brown-spotted.   
Sniff the bottoms. The sweet one
will be fragrant. How to eat:
put the knife away, lay down newspaper.   
Peel the skin tenderly, not to tear the meat.   
Chew the skin, suck it,
and swallow. Now, eat
the meat of the fruit,
so sweet,
all of it, to the heart.   
~poet Li-Young Lee 

Real ceramic fruit with no acrylic additives
