Asian Pear - Mishirasu

Acquired: 2004
How started:

A relatively new Asian Pear. Ripens mid-late September. Fruit size is very large, some weighing a pound or more, shaped more like a European pear. Flesh is intensely sweet, quite crisp and crunchy, with a russetted brown skin. Unattractive appearance, but good flavor. A good choice for salads as well as fresh eating. One of the largest early ripening Asian pears.
