Question:

There weren’t any holes that I noticed on the skin, but I found these pieces in the flesh of the pear. Are they stam blemishes, or insects?
Thank you for your help

(You can keep the photos and use them for any teaching purposes) :)

Answer:

I can’t tell, but if the pear was soft in that area it would be a sign of infestation.

Best Wishes
