Los Angeles, California – Currently right now at the peak of the season Melissa’s Butterscotch Pears from South Korea are now found into produce departments across the country. These crisp, sweet, delicious, large sized Asian pears are considered the premium variety. Not only are they special from how they are grown, but how attractive they look to how wonderful their flavor is. Extreme care is taken while growing these pears; offering the cleanest and blemish-free fruit. In a very detailed and labor-intensive process, these pears are carefully hand-wrapped while still on the trees with a protective paper cover to protect them from the elements. The wrapping process protects the fruit from wind damage, rain, sunburn and other natural causes of blemishes and scars.
Butterscotch Pears offer a thinner skin, so when you bite into each piece; the taste is just the flavor of the juicy flesh. Also, the pears have a smaller core which can retain more juice than any other variety of pears. These pears are “field fresh” meaning they are imported fresh from the fields, from an ideal growing conditions produce a better-tasting, juicier pear than any other growing area in the world. Season is November to March only….
