Asian pears range in size from small to medium and vary in shape from round, globular, and squat to oval with a bulbous base that tapers into a rounded top. The firm skin can be golden yellow, green, or bronze and may be smooth, have some russeting, or be covered in visible lenticels or pores. The flesh is ivory to white and is crunchy, juicy, and creamy with a central fibrous core encasing several small, brown-black seeds. Asian pears are crisp with a sweet, floral flavor, low acidity, and a fragrant aroma when ripe.
Ya Asian Pears are delicious cooked with Asian soups, nuts, and fruit salads.
To ripen, store them at room temperature. Store ripe nashi in the fridge for up to two weeks.
