I tried a Korean giant pear about one week ago. It was not what I 
expected. The texture and flavor (including a fair percentage grit 
cells) was much more like a european pear than the asian pears I am 
familiar with. It reminded me of the "ok, but not very exciting" 
european pears I grew up with in Africa (not costal -- up over a mile 

The question is: is that what I should expect from that pear? Is it 
possible that it wasn't properly ripe? (It didn't feel super hard, but 
it wasn't exactly soft, either.)

In zone 5 and thinking "So this has to be our Indian summer" and "Will 
my male kiwi decide to do the right thing next spring so I can get some 
:-,  <= A smiley face licking its lips in anticipation.
