Korean Pears are crunchy, juicy and sweet. Extreme care is taken while growing these pears; the outcome is a clean, blemish-free fruit. Unlike Western pears, Korean Pears are round and large in size. The skin of the pear has a light, brownish-yellow tint while the inner flesh is white. This variety is cultivated to have an extremely thin skin, which is sweet not bitter.
Korean Pears have a variety of uses in cooking, sliced, diced or shredded over salads, baked, or stuffed for desserts. Korean Pears may be stored at room temperature for a week or so, or in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
