Pear of Tochigi "Nikkori (Smile)"
Size brings surprise
Taste brings smiles!
There are several reasons why pears of Tochigi are so delicious: "a lot of sunshine", "fertile soil", "clear water". A thoroughbred - it inherits its taste from its father while its size is from its mother. The father is the tasty "Housui", and the mother is the plump "Niitaka". Born in the Agricultural Experiment Station in Tochigi Prefecture in 1986, it was named "Nikkori", after joining the famous sightseeing spot in Tochigi Prefecture “Nikko” with "Ri" from the Chinese word for pears. Harvest time of "Nikkori” is from mid-October. Of course, enjoying the fresh harvest is best, but if stored in a cool dark place it can also be served until January. Enjoy our Tochigi Nikkori which is confident in its rich taste and size. It is also a popular gift item.
