Champlain Orchards Asian Pear
Aisian Pears are round and russeted with wonderful sweet pear flavor. Champlain Orchards has started growing these and has three excellent varieties. Each week they will send us the best of them for you to try. They are Shinsui, Shinseki, or Hosui.

We are packing these in smaller sleeves that hold 1 1/2 pounds each. Approximately 6-9 pears.
Bill and Andrea at Champlain Orchards grow many organic fruits and vegetables, and produce apple products. They are committed to organic practices for their fruit production, and part of their apple crop is organic; most of their apples, however, are minimally sprayed to manage pests in an integrated practice with natural methods.

A nice way to enjoy the taste of pear in an a firm apple form, no mush. Also, a good size for a snack or desert when you don't want a huge apple.

My kids beg for these every week. They are so very sweet and juicy. We get them every week they are available and they are gone by the weekend.

We completely agree with the other reviewers. These are nothing like storebought. They're so juicy that it's more like eating a ripe nectarine than a pear or an apple. And the flavor is amazing! I usually eat one walking home from our pick up.

Love, love, LOVE these tiny Asian pears! We get them every week they are offered and they are gobbled up in a couple days. Sweet, crisp and floral with a thin skin - they are just yummy. We'll be sad to see them go when the season is over.

These are fantastic! The grocery store ones are often too hard and fairly tasteless, but these are sweet, juicy, and delicious. Also, because they are smaller, they are easier to eat.
