Nashi Japanese Pear – In Season Now – Best Recipes

Nashi Japanese Pears are one of my favorite fruits in Japan. Crisp and juicy they are in season from August to October in Japan. Although on the outside Nashi look like green apples, on the inside they are crisp juicy pears. Super high in fiber, low in calories (one large Nashi has abut 120 calories) and packed full of micronutrients. Great pealed, slice and eaten chilled or diced and chopped to be added to desserts, salads or main dishes.
