Xiang Li Pear
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.
