Asian Pear

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Asian pears also go by many names including apple pear and nashi in Japan.  The Japanese love to give Asian pears as gifts to friends and co-workers in beautifully packaged boxes.  They are firm to the touch, can grow quite large in size and are juicy and yellowish green or brown russet in color like a pear and crisp and round like an apple.  They grow well in hot climates and should be allowed to ripen on the tree unlike most pears. Harvest is usually mid-September and Asian Pears will keep in cold storage for up to 3 months.   They have a high water content so they are best eaten out of hand or sliced in a salad.
