Nijisseiki, commonly known as the 20th Century Pear, is celebrated for its exceptional taste, a harmonious blend of sweetness and juiciness. Supposedly, this fruit was cultivated as the result of a happy accident! The seedling was discovered in 1888 by a young boy living in Yatsuhshira, Japan. The fruit that grew was larger, firmer, and more succulent than other pear varieties, meaning people loved it.


The Nijisseiki Pear, originally from Japan, is a fruit with a rich history dating back to the early 20th century. It was first cultivated in the 1900s by Japanese horticulturist Pyrus pyrifolia and quickly became popular for its delectable flavour and appealing appearance. This variety was named the "20th Century Pear" to commemorate its introduction during that era. Since then, it has gained worldwide acclaim for its taste and versatility in culinary applications.


Nijisseiki Pears originated in Japan, where they are still cultivated today. However, their popularity has led to cultivation in other regions, including the United States, South Korea, and China. The ideal climate for Nijisseiki Pear cultivation includes warm summers and well-drained soil.

Flavours & Texture

What sets Nijisseiki Pears apart is their exquisite flavour profile. They offer a sweet, honey-like taste with a hint of citrus, creating a delightful balance of flavours. The texture is crisp and juicy, and their thin, golden skin adds a pleasant texture.


Nijisseiki Pears are best enjoyed fresh. Simply wash the pear, slice it into thin wedges, and remove the seeds and core. This pear is delicious when used in salads, desserts, or paired with cheese.
