Organic Hosui Asian Pears

Size: 3lbs

Asian pears or Nashi are also known as Apple Pears. They have a refreshing crunch reminiscent of an apple, but are genetically true pears. They're very juicy and our Farm to Table Cafe in the San Francisco Ferry Building regularly offers Asian Pear juice on its Fall and Winter menu.

The Hosui is popular in both Japan and in California. Hosuis have a rougher, thicker skin than the other Asian pear varieties we grow. They have a flesh that while still crunchy has a more melting mouthful, making the texture combination when eaten out of hand spectacular. Very sweet with a mild pear taste, their round shape and beautiful golden hue make them ideal for presentation with a distinctively Autumnal feel. Hosui is harvested in late August to mid-September and are available often until late October or early November.

    My dad loved them!

    My dad loved these Asian Pears so much, I just bought him a second (larger) order yesterday!!!

    Fantastic Pears

    The kind men at the farmer’s market in Larkspur shared a sample of their favorite (Hosui Pears) and I have a new favorite from Frog Hollow. They are delicious, crisp, light, and you are able to eat the skin. We were able to enjoy when visiting CA, and now able to enjoy them on the east coast. Thank you!!

    Incredible Asian Pears

    These Hosui Asian pears are delicious. Utterly sweet, juicy, with a crisp delicacy and a marvelous flavor—such a luxurious treat. I don't live in a region that can grow these, so I'm grateful to be able to get them fresh from Frog Hollow. It's been hard for my family to not polish off our box of them in just a couple of days!
