Pears or Siuet Lai
Pears are a common fruit in China and available all year round from supermarkets and wet markets.

They are similar to a conference pear in England, but squatter in appearance with pale yellow dappled skin. The taste is exactly as you would expect.

Seasonably other types of pear may be available, including Conference types and other varieties.

Be careful to buy only pears, as China has some weird sort of apple/peachy/pear fruits that closely resemble these, but smell quite different.

Use them exactly as you would in UK, either eaten whole or added to fruit salad.

Remember to always wash the outside of pears, as they are often sprayed with all manner of things - to the point that unless you know they are organically grown, you would be wise to peel them!
