It is the Australian Day Long weekend and Saturday was a super hot day with temperatures around 37 degrees. It was so humid I just wanted to stay indoors the whole day. We were invited over to our friend’s house and luckily they had a pool so most of us have gone in to cool down twice throughout the day. My friend normally prepares most of the food but we bought some fruit over so everyone can cool down with some nice fruits. When I got to the shop, I found a fruit which was a bit interesting but also a bit confusing. Let’s see what it was.
On the sign, it says its a Korean pear but the origin is from China. That in itself was confusing but I thought I had to buy it and give it a try because the pear was actually pretty big. It looked like a nashi pear but just bigger and a lot darker. Price wise it was pretty expensive considering nashi pears are normally $5-6 a kilo and this was already $3.49AUD each.
We took it our friend’s place and they also haven’t seen this before. So let’s cut it up and see what it looks like. Just like I thought, it’s like a nashi pear. Tastes the same just a bit sweeter. Nothing too special that I need to go out of my way to buy another one. Do you have this Korean pear in your city?
