imperial asian pears

The delicious sweet crunch of an Imperial Asian Pear is a distinct characteristic of this late summer fruit. These pears ripen in August-September, and are normally available through the first one to two months of Spring.

Characteristics of an Imperial Asian Pear

There are over 1,000 varieties of Imperial Asian Pears, which are popularly known as “apple pears” due to their resemblance to apples. Asian Pears are yellow-green to pale yellow with smooth small lenticels. As a result, their white flesh within is sweet, firm, crisp and juicy. Asian Pears are high in fiber and low in calories. Also, they are a good source of Potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Copper.  Added bonus, this fruit is a delicious addition to salads like our Fall Asian Pear Salad.

In 1942, Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. This orchard and fruit growing wisdom was passed down from father to son. In 1999, The Fruit Company was founded by Roy's grandsons, Scott & Addison Webster. Today, Scott runs the business as President and CEO. The Fruit Company packs and ships beautiful fruit gifts around the nation.
