Piqa Boo

So a couple of years back I happened upon a variety of pears I’d never seen before: Piqa Boo from New Zealand.

I saw them again today at a local restaurant-turned-fruitshop in Carlton and bought a small bag full. Crisp and juicy like the Asian Nashi (of which I am not a great fan) blended with the sweet flavour of the southern European varieties like the Pera de Jumilla from Spain (which I love).

Quite lovely and beautiful to behold!

Anyone had them?
