I discovered these pears by the recommendations of a friend. They are called Scented Asian Pears and they can be easily found in Chinatown. Unlike other Asian pears, these are more oblong than round in shape. Also, their surface is more uneven and textured than other Asian pears.
But what really sets them apart is how they taste: crispy, sweet, and juicy, with a subtle pleasant scent. Pure goodness! If you have the chance to pass by Chinatown this week, go pick some up at any of the supermarkets. Tell me what you think of them!
