“Wa-nashi” is the kinds of pear cultivated in Japan.
It appears in the market as fruit in Japan from summer to autumn.
The feature of “Wa-nashi” is round, plumpy, heavily and axis is solid.
“Wa-nashi” is fresh and juicy, and the crispy texture is good for eating raw. It is delicious even if it is used for salad.
Also, “Wa-nashi” has two types by the skin color. One is a “red pear” type (yellowish-brown skin color), the other is “bluish pear” type (apple-green skin color).
“Ko-sui” and “Sin Takanashi” are “red pear” type. And “Nijyuseiki” and “Kikusui” are “bluish pear” type. They are all delicious!
There is an event called “Nashi-gari” (pear picking) in Japan. We go to “Wa-nashi” farm to pick pears off from the tree.
You can enjoy picking and eating “Wa-nashi” for about around 1,000 yen.
The period of “Nashi-gari” is possible from the end of August to the end of September.
If you have a plan to Japan at this season, please try it!
