asian pear picture
I found a tree of these asian pears in my neighborhood. They all had the same asymmetrical shape (lop-sided) and the same swollen stems. Is this a common variety with a disease, or are there asian pear varieties that don't come out nice and round? The one in the photo was on the ground and slightly bruised. The flavor was sweet and interesting, a mix of grape and caramel.
