With its crisp bite and round contours, the Asian pear reminds us of an apple, so its nickname "apple pear" isn't off the mark. The mild, sweet taste comes fully forward with incredible crunch and juiciness. The peel adds tanginess to the sweet flesh. Try tossing slices of Asian pear into a stir-fry — its crispness is like a water chestnut's.
