  • Texture: Crisp and juicy
  • Taste: Sweet
  • Can be used as a cooking ingredient
  • Japanese Apple (Akibae Apple)

  • Peel: Dark red skin
  • Texture: Hard pulp
  • Taste: A little bit sour
  • Pear

    French Pear (William Pear)

  • How to Select Apple

    1. Check the Apple’s Firmness

    Pick up the apple and gently press a small area of the fruit’s skin. It should be firm to the touch. Avoid apples that are noticeably soft, discolored, or indent easily after you press the skin.

    2. Visually Examine the Apple

    As you check firmness, turn the apple completely in your hand to visually check for quality. Apples with bruising or obvious signs of decay aren't going to provide the best eating experience and should be avoided.

    3. Give Your Apple A Sniff

    A fresh, high-quality apple should have a pleasant aroma.

    How to Select Pear

    1. Check the Pear’s Firmness

    A firm pear with juicy and crisp flesh. When the pear becomes soft, it indicates that is ripe enough with higher sweetness.

    2. Visually Examine the Pear

    Light bruising commonly occurs during production. These marks are purely cosmetic, though, adding that they don‘t normally affect the pear’s interior. Avoid any pears with large dark or mushy spots and tears in the flesh. Those are the common indicators of a bad pear, and they mean that the fruit will decay faster than normal.
