Organic Hosui Asian Pears


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.

    Crisp an delicious Asian Pears

    Your Asian pears were quite a treat ! Yummy and hard to resist

    I enjoyed the crisp taste - added them in salads - and especially love them sliced with balsamic

    Nothing you can pick up in NYC stores can compare


    I sent a box of these pears to my mother as a gift and she really enjoyed them. She said they were sweet and very juicy.

    Thank you, Frog Hollow, for quality fruit!

    Wonderful pears !!

    I ordered the Hosui Asian pears & Warren pears. Both were fabulous. So sweet & honestly better than any other pears we have tasted.

    Perfect little gems!

    These we soo delicious! My partner hates the texture of the typical pear. But I sliced one of these and only got half of it to myself. I poached four more in amontillado and served with coconut whip and again got only half.
    Fast shipping, freshest of fruit and so very delicious. Amazing. Thank you.

    Ripe and sweet
