Yali pears are medium to large in size and are tear-drop shaped, usually slanted to one side with a large base that tapers to a smaller, narrow neck with a characteristically long, brown stem. The thin, green skin transforms to yellow when ripe and is firm and smooth with light russeting and prominent lenticels or pores covering the surface. The flesh is white to cream-colored, crisp, moist, fine-textured, and aromatic, encasing a central core with a few small, black seeds. Yali pears are also somewhat softer than other Asian pears, making them more susceptible to bruising. When ripe, Yali pears are sweet, mildly tart, and juicy, with flavor notes of cinnamon, anise, spice, and vanilla.
Yali Asian pears are available from Penryn Orchards in the fall months.
