Origin and History
Found in France in the early nineteenth century and currently grown mainly in Italy, the USA and South Africa.
Fruit’s shape and size
Kaiser’s are medium-large sized and have small and stocky body.
Characteristics of ripeness of the skin, the flavour and texture
Kaiser have a distinctive and unique skin colour with hues that derive from dark brown and therefore, are so-called “Monks Frocks”. When the fruit is ready for harvesting or consumption, it becomes yellowish with rusty hues and the flesh becomes thin with rich aromas, a truly delicious pear!
The best pear for your recipes! Kaiser is a great pear for fresh consumption; its firm flesh makes it the best pear for use in the kitchen, like Kaiser poached in red wine or served alongside melted chocolate as a dessert.
