Nashi Pear

とても立派な梨をいただきました。
Just the other day, a box of nashi pears arrived at my door all out of blue. It was a total surprise and was from my lovely friend who lives in Tochigi prefecture, north of Tokyo. They were the biggest and most delicious nashi I had ever seen or tasted I felt so spoiled! I used to be able to buy nashi pears in Australia but they were not the same. I'm sure you can get them in other countries too but it's best to try them in the homeland so if you are ever in Japan in late summer to early autumn please do try them!
You can learn more about the nashi pear here ;)

Well it's already Friday night here, hope your weekends will be wonderful!
