Asian Pears are shaped like apples but have the texture and color of pears. Very tasty with a crunch that is juicy and sweet!
Chojuro - Medium size round pear with skin colors of orange/brown to russet brown skin. White flesh is sweet, firm, crisp and of good quality which helps with its lengthy storage of 5 months. The fruit ripens in early to mid August.
