Champlain Orchards Eco 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.
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 and pears, however, are minimally sprayed to manage pests in an integrated practice with natural methods.

The Asian pears are sweet and juicy. They tend to be on the small side, (about 1.5 size a golf ball) but the skin is not as thick as the kind you get at the Asian supermarket, so it's fine to eat the skin. It makes a handy, easy snack to pack for my kids.

These had great flavor! Sometimes Asian pears are quite watery, but not these--just nice and juicy. They are pretty small--my kids usually eat two.
