Asian pear, called ‘Nashi’

This is Nashi pear also called Japanese pear, Asian pear, Chinese pear and so on.
They are very different from European pears. Asian pears are sweet  juicy gritty texture fruits. They have  a high water content. So It’s good for raw eating,
but It isn’t suitable for making heated recipes like pies, jam, and so on. I like this fresh and juicy taste that can’t be eaten only in the fall.

We generally serve them raw and peeled in Japan.
