Pear Trees

What's the difference between a European and Asian Pear?

Asian pears, sometimes called apple pears, differ from European-type pears in shape, texture and ripening times. Asian pears are round and apple-shaped, rather than pear-shaped, and have a crisp texture. Also, Asian pears can be picked from the tree and eaten immediately. European pears are harvested from the tree before they are ripe. To ripen a European pear, place the pear in a brown paper bag for a few days. A ripe European pear has a juice, soft, melt-in-your-mouth type texture. Gurney's offers both Asian and European pear trees in standard and Reachables sizes.
