Asian Pear is the generic name for over 25 different varieties of this "true pear." Although the outside appearance of each Asian Pear may differ, all Asian Pears are crunchy, juicy and sweet. Thought to originally come to the United States via Chinese immigrants, most Asian Pears are now grown in California, Oregon, and Washington.

Depending on the variety, Melissa's Asian Pears may be considerably large or somewhat small. Their color may vary from yellow to brown, and their skin may be smooth or speckled. Some of the most popular varieties generally can be described as: Hosui (Golden Russet Brown), Kosui (Golden Russet), Nijiseiki or Twentieth Century (Yellow-Green), Shinseiki (Yellow), Shinsui (Russet Brown). Chilled or cooked, Asian Pears from Melissa's always make a wonderful addition to any meal!

Melissa's Asian Pears are hand-selected for excellent quality. Usually sold ripe and ready to eat, choose Asian Pears that are hard and fragrant. Once purchased, Asian Pears can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
