Japanese La France Western Pear (Large-Plus)
Le France was discovered in France in 1864, but is currently rarely cultivated in Europe due to unsuitable climate. It was introduced to Yamagata Prefecture and currently accounts for about 70% of the production volume and is a representative of pear in Japan.
La France is characterized by its overflowing juice and elegant, melty creamy texture. It is also called the “Queen of Fruits” because of its rich taste. Each pear is at least 400-450g each with green skin color which turns yellow with brown motted spots which developed over time when ripening, which may attain sweetness as high as 15 brix level. They are usually available only for a short period between October to December, so try out while they are in season!
