This variety is one of the most widely grown Asian apple pears in the world.
This extraordinary flavored 20th Century Asian pear was first discovered in 1898 as a chance seedling in Matsudo City, Japan. This variety is one of the most widely grown Asian apple pears in the world. The fruit has a delicate, blemish-free, golden yellow skin that our Hood River, Oregon grower hand-wraps individually and packs in a convenient 4-count cell for protection against bruising.

These crisp and juicy pears have a complex flavor that begins with notes of vanilla-butterscotch and then finishes with a refreshingly pleasant tartness. Japanese 20th Century pears make an excellent hand snack, adds flavor and crunch to salads and pairs extremely well with tart cheeses. Product of Oregon.

Choose fruit with no bruises or soft spots. Store refrigerated for up to two weeks.
