Xiang Li Pear
Oval body with wobbly lumps here and there, greenish yellow skin and slight red blushing, long stems and white flesh. Really crunchy, juicy and airy; I find the texture to be very satisfying and compelling Very soft flavor but with lots of layers; some bites seem bland, some floral, some spicy, some citrusy, some sweet. Fragrant pears are fairly small and roughly oval, with long stems. The light green or yellow skin, with a reddish blush on some fruits, is thin and readily edible; the flesh is extraordinarily tender, crisp and juicy. The flavor is delicate, and different from that of most Asian pears, with a whiff of the “pear ester,” ethyl decadienoate, which gives European varieties their characteristic aroma.
