One of the most popular Asian Pears in Japan, Nijiseiki is a large, crisp, juicy and flavorful yellow variety. If you do as the Japanese do and thin fruit clusters to one fruit each in late spring, you will be amazed at how large the fruit will become.  Known as the 20th century pear this is an upright spreading tree. The fruit is yellowish green with clear skin. The flavor is mild with tartness towards the core, very crisp and crunchy.


As well as being delicious to eat as a fruit Nashi Pears are popular sliced thinly and added to salads. Use them also as a palate cleanser in between food courses.
