Sweet with a mild pear flavor, apple pears, also known as Asian pears, are one of the most refreshing fruits out there. Crunchy, white flesh with thin brown skin, apple pears have a pleasant crisp bite to them, making them super satisfying to eat. The crunch is similar to a crisp apple or water chestnut, but much juicier and sometimes subtly gritty. High in sugar content, the fruit turns from a muted gold-green to bright yellow when ripe. In the market, you’ll find apple pears in prim rows with snazzy mesh jackets to protect the ripened fruit.

Due to their crunch, Apple Pears are perfect when cut up and put as a garnish for salads. Eat raw, out-of-hand, or use in slaws; they are great dippers for warm caramel or chocolate fondue. Cooked, they can be used in pies, crisps and cakes, as well as savory dishes and chutneys.

Choose fruit that is firm and fragrant. Can be stored at room temperature up to five days, or refrigerated up to three months.
