Beware of the Asian Pears and Employees! - Sky Top Orchard
North Carolina Orchards Directory - our listing of orchards in North Carolina
Prized highly for its exotic apple-like appearance and pear-like taste, the Asian Pear is a highly nutritious fruit that has delivered time-honored health benefits to people not just in Asia but also throughout the world. Also known as the apple pear, the Asian pear is customarily given as a pricey and precious gift throughout Asia. Because it is such a luxurious fruit, it is good enough to eat on its own immediately after picking. Asian Pears, like apples and peaches, should be left to ripen on the tree for best flavor. Once picked, they will keep very well in cold storage.
