YA-LI ASIAN PEARS

Yali pears

Finally an Asian pear that is pear shaped! Ya-li is a Chinese variety, also called "singing bird pear." This very pretty pear looks like a more slender, elegant version of Bartlett. Smooth greenish yellow skin. Crisp juicy texture and fine sweet-tart flavor with hint of anise and spice.

Season: August to September.

Size: 12 to 40 per metric layer.

Suggested uses: Fresh eating, salads, cheese platters, roasting, grilled, poached.

Shelf life: Keep at cool room temperature for 3 weeks
