Fragrant pears are small, slightly round and sometimes egg-shaped. The pear lives up to its name; it is fragrant, with a floral aroma. Yellow and green in color with a slight red blush, these aromatic pears have smooth skin and small dots on its surface. The pears travel quite a distance from where they are grown and can be found wrapped in tissue and a netted sleeve. 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. The pears are grown in the city of Korla, which is the largest city in Western China. 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.
