Asian Pear Puree Spec Sheet

Nashi, or Asian Pear are sourced from the southern region of Chiba Prefecture.  Located on the Pacific coast of Japan’s Kanto Region, just east of Tokyo, Chiba Prefecture is known for its temperate climate. The warm climate and long growing seasons makes Chiba a great place for produce.  Harvest begins in August and can run into October depending on conditions because Asian Pears stop ripening the moment they are picked, so timing is crucial.  Succulent, juicy and refreshing texture separate these incredible pears from the European varieties.  Prized for their crisp texture, white flesh, juicy, low-acid, almost melon-like flavor and wonderful aroma.
