    I think it would be in the same category as any other pear.

    I know them as Nashi Pears. They are very nice - very white flesh, and crispy, a bit more like an apple than a pear, but not really quite like either, if you see what I mean! They are very juicy.

    They are from the same genus (Pyrus) as other pears, so they are fruit and superfree.

    Wikipedia has information and pictures:
    Pyrus pyrifolia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You have reminded me that I haven't had one for ages, so thank you - I will try to get one today.

    Wow! That's cheap! Must get myself off to Asda tomorrow. It's at the other side of Reading from me, and a real pig to get to, but that makes it worth the effort and I can get some wholemeal pitta at the same time.

    OK - it's off to Asda tomorrow then. It's not that far - it's just that getting from the north of Reading to the south involves faffing about with one-way systems and is usually too much trouble. But this time I will make an exception!!
