Nashi is a crisp, juicy and refreshing type of pear from Asia but grown in New Zealand since 1982– often called “the fruit you drink”. It’s delicious in many ways, cold from the fridge on a hot day. Poached in Autumn puddings, spiced with Winter curries or preserved for use in the Spring with your morning cereal. Nashi are suitable for babies, children, the elderly, sports people and dieters, anyone really.

At work or play, Nashi is nature’s boost of natural sugar. It’s fat free, so try it as your morning juice and feel refreshed before you start the day. Nashi are simply delicious as a fruit snack, or for something different try it in your cooking. When you bite into a Nashi, you’re getting a burst of natural energy, and vitamins too.
