I Love Xinjiang Fragrant Pear (新疆香梨)

Xinjiang Pear (新疆香梨)

Juicy, thin skin, crunchy, and very fragrant. No wonder they are called “Fragrant Pear.”

Xinjiang Pear (新疆香梨)

Definitely my favorite kind of pear.

On sale now at 99 Ranch for only $1.18/lb. Hurry, grab them while you can and bid goodbye to those mushy kinds of pear.

    I love pears but I hate the skin. The only way I would eat them is if they were peeled.

    My mom used to peel them for me when I was a kid. :-) I’m such a mama’s boy.

    Pearl is one of my favorite fruit, we have many kind of pearl here in Europe…Also a very small one, which is called poire à botzi (no translation sorry), and we find it only in my area in Fribourg ;-) But this one looks good !

    Have a nice day

    Pablo – yes, I have 3 table napkins (dark navy, khaki, and white) and they show up in the majority of my shots. This is the dark navy ones.

    Oppss – Korean pears are great and very juicy, but this one is just so fragrant and better, too, in my opinion.

    Sim – it’s $1.18/lb now in SoCal.

    Lindsay – yes, and very sweet and juicy, too.

    Ming – you’re too spoilt. ;P

    KM- Check out my profile to find out what I do. ;)

    Claude – I love pearls, too. Hehe.

    Kenny – yes, hiong lei, very hiong. :)

    Kok – I will check it out.

    Tiga – I am not sure if they are indeed from Xinjiang, but the name says so, but who knows.

    Kenny – be patient. Perhaps Kok has some “hybrid” new kind of pears to show us?

    Meiyen – yes, sweet and juicy they are.

    Only thing i dont like about this pear is that it’s too small. can finish with 4 bites.

    These pears are really good. Very sweet and nice crunch to them. Never seen them anywhere else but 99 Ranch. Wonder if they’re really from Xinjiang, or can they be grown closer to the US?
