Korean pear, also known as Asian pear, is a unique fruit similar to an apple. Asian pear has a very high water content and is a very fragile fruit. The pears are typically eaten fresh and not baked. The outer peel is edible, similar to the skin on a Bosc pear, and the flesh inside is crunchy and sweet.
