The 20th Century (or Nijisseiki) is an Asian pear discovered in 1898, Matsudo City, Japan. This green-yellow pear has become one of the most widely grown Asian apple pears in the world and has complex flavors that make eating it a real treat. It is wonderfully crisp and juicy with notes of vanilla and butterscotch at first bite. A complex pear, the taste changes as you eat the fruit closer to the core, finishing with an unusual tartness mixed with a refreshing sorbet-like texture.
