  3. Korea Pear

    Korea Pear

    $S11.90

    A Korean Pear is like the love child of a big green apple and a Bosc pear — round, bigger than typical pears, with a crisp, sweet, white interior with a brownish-yellow skin. It’s hard and crisp when ripe, not like other pears that must soften to be ripe. The beauty of Korean pears is they are superbly crisp, juicy and sweet with the thinnest skin (no need for peeling). They’re good in any salad where you might use chopped apples, or simply sliced and eaten for a snack or dessert.

    A plus is they don’t tend to darken when cut, unlike lots of apple varieties and some pears, so they hold up well in a salad or lunchbox even when sliced or chopped. Another plus is they’re only about 50 calories per fruit!

Fragrant pears are best eaten when firm; they are crisp, sweet and juicy with a white flesh. Fragrant pears are best eaten fresh, out-of-hand, but they also work well in green salads and in baked goods. The Fragrant pear has been cultivated in the Xinjiang province of China for over 1300 years. It was only introduced to the rest of the world in 2006. Grown along the Silk Road, these pears are considered the finest in the area and are more expensive than most grown in surrounding China, Japan or Korea.

Farmers there use air guns to remove dirt, insects or debris from the pears and gently wrap them in tissue and foam net for their journey across the world.
