Use

The Chinese Pear, also known as Apple-Pear due to its apple-shape, is usually eaten raw and peeled like an apple. It is used as a sweet addition to many dishes in the Asian cuisine. The fresh taste resembles pear, pineapple and honey with an Asian touch. The fruit has a high water concentration which makes it less suitable for pies or jams.

Varieties

The Nashi variety is round with a yellow-brown skin. The Ya variety is pear-shaped with a more white-brown skin. The Su variety has a greenish skin and its shape is in between that of an apple and a pear.
