Have you ever eaten a Subarish Kudamondo?  They are gourmet Asian pears and a great holiday gift for the foodies on your list.

The Asian pear has long been a favorite of chefs.  Some refer to it as an apple pear.  In 1973,  American businessman, the late Joel Spira, was given some of these pears while in Japan.  When he got home, he couldn’t find any and decided to grow his own.  He and his wife began their own orchard in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania.  Now you can order them from www.wonderfulfruit.com   starting at $26.95 for a small box of  four to six  pears.

Each gourmet pear is hand-selected, hand-packed as a gift and shipped direct delivery. The orchard team will select the tree-ripened variety to freshly hand-pack for your gift set. The medium gift  box ($37.95)  features five pounds of fruit typically containing 5 to 7 medium-sized pears; and our large gift box ($59.95)  at nine pounds of fruit, offers a range of 9 to 18 pears.
