Huizhou White Pear(Anhui)

 Huizhou White Pear(Anhui)

A speciality in Shexian County. During the early period of the pear, farmers have the small pear enveloped with a processed paper bag. Five months later, the pears are ripe, and are picked with the envelope. So the pear is as white as snow because of lacking sunshine. This kind of pear, a bit sour, crisp and watery, tastes sweet. The pear enjoys a great reputation among the tourists as they are on sale from September till next May.
