The seasonality of Asian pears is typically all year around. This fruit will come ripe. To store, it can be kept at room temperature and will last in excess of a week in most cases, however we would suggest keeping it in a fridge after 3 or 4 days.

The Asian Pear is a unique fruit known for its crisp and juicy flesh and sweet, slightly tangy flavour. It offers versatility in both fresh consumption and cooking. Asian Pears are often enjoyed as a snack or added to fruit salads for a refreshing and juicy treat. In cooking, they add a sweet and tangy flavour to dishes such as sauces, stews, and stir-fries, and provide a crunchy texture to salads and coleslaws. Asian Pears can also be blended into juices, smoothies, and cocktails for a hydrating and refreshing experience. They are a popular ingredient in Asian drinks, lending their unique flavour to a variety of beverages.
