Melissa's Korean Peras
Every November through March for the past few years, Melissa’s Korean Pears make their way into produce departments across the country. These crisp, sweet, delicious, larger sized pears are considered a premium variety.

In terms of eye-appeal there is extreme care taken while growing these pears; offering the cleanest and typically blemish-free fruit that is capable of being produced. In a very detailed and labor-intensive process, these pears are carefully hand-wrapped while still on the trees with a protective paper cover to protect them from the elements. The wrapping process protects the fruit from wind damage, rain, sunburn and other natural causes of blemishes and scars.
Korean Pears offer a thinner skin, so when you bite into each fruit; the taste is a juicy flesh. Also, the pears have a smaller core which is able to retain more juice than any other variety of pears.
These Korean Pears are “field fresh” meaning they are imported fresh from the fields in Korea to us. The ideal growing conditions produce a better-tasting, juicier pear than any other growing area in the world.
