Nashi pear

Ever taken a trip to an Asian country? If so, you’ve likely come across nashi pears. These large, round fruits bear a striking resemblance to apples in shape. Not only are they a delightful fruit, but they also find their way into a variety of dishes. For this reason, they are becoming increasingly popular in other parts of the world. The nashi pear is white inside and has a small core. The pear has a thin skin with a golden colour and has a deliciously fresh taste.
