Japanese Shirone Le Lectier Pear
These pears are grown in the famous region Shirone district, the city’s “pear capital.” Local farmers brought the first Le Lectier trees over from France in 1903. Le Lectiers are considered a delicacy, as they are more difficult to cultivate than other western varieties and small quantity yields. Le Lectiers are very tasty and of extremely high quality, thanks to the salubrious effects of the Shinanogawa River, which supplies abundant water and keeps the local land very fertile, producing top quality pears in the country each year.
These pears are known for their superior fragrance with hint of banana and smooth texture, with a high level of sweetness. They are picked in late October and are ready to eat by December after they soften and turn yellow.
*Le Lectier pear comes in 7-10pcs, depending on sizes.
