Looking to add a new fruit to spice up your meals? Meet the Asian pear! With an appearance like an apple-pear hybrid, Asian pears come in more than varieties. The texture is closer to that of an apple than a pear.
Pyrus pyrifolia, or Asian pears, are a large group of pears that have a crisp texture when fully ripened, unlike European pears that must be softened prior to eating. They are often referred to as a salad pear due to their firm texture. Asian pears are self fertile but produce a better crop when two or more varieties are planted together. Cooler summers will delay the ripening process but a warmer one will hasten it. They are a great source of vitamin B and C.
