One 4.3 oz. apple pear contains 51 calories, according to CalorieKing. This serving accounts for approximately 2.6 percent of the calories you should eat in a day if you're following a 2,000 calorie diet.

Nutrients

Many of the calories in a 4.3 oz. serving of apple pear come from carbohydrates. This size of the fruit contains 13.1 g of carbs, which functions primarily as energy for your body, according to MedlinePlus. The Institute of Medicine recommends consuming 130 g of carbs each day. A serving of apple pear also contains trace amounts of fat and protein.

Serving Suggestions

The apple pear can be eaten raw, but you can also serve it paired with mild cheese, according to a September 2008 article on NJ.com. This fruit also pairs well as poultry stuffing or sauteed with butter for dessert. However, serving apple pears in these ways will increase the number of calories you consume.
