Asian Pear

Hard to the touch even when ripe, the Asian Pear is most often enjoyed raw, but can also be baked, poached, or sautéed. The meat of the fruit is crisp and juicy, and is a good source of vitamin C. There are many varieties of Asian Pear ranging in color from green to brown, and in size from a tennis ball to a softball.
