There are thousands of different known varieties of Asian pears, each varying slightly in shape and color. All Asian pears today are relatives of Pyrus ussuriensis (Ussuri pear) and Pyrus serotina (Japanese sand pear). The Asian pear is known by many names including Nashi, Japanese pear, sand pear and Chinese pear. Though of no relation to apples Asian pears are often referred to as apple pears because of their crisp and juicy apple like consistency.
Tsu-Li Asian pears are large, with an irregular pear shape. They have a greenish coarse skin that is freckled with some russeting. Tsu-Li Asian pears have a pineapple aroma and a firm, cream colored flesh with a delicious floral taste.
Asian pears are low in calories with about 50 calories per medium sized pear. They are a good source of vitamin C with each pear containing 8% of your daily requirement and provide a fair amount of fiber, most of which is found in the skin.
