"Only specialist importers handle this product"
Chinese Nashi-pears available

The Chinese hard fruit season has started. At 888 Fruit Company the first Nashi pears are available. The first of these yellow coloured pears are of the Emerald variety. Nico Schaft from 888 said that they will soon have other varieties such as Century, Crystal, Crown and Golden. "Whereas before, Nashi pears were mainly used by Asian people, these days they are included in the selections of many supermarkets."

The supply is sufficient according to Nico. "Only specialist importers handle these pears, they already have experience with this product", he says. According to him the quality in China is getting better because of strict controls by the inspectors.

All products from China are traded under the brand 888. Nico said he will have the first Nashi pears in on Friday which are already selling well. "We have a program running with China where after storage in CA-Cooling, we can offer Nasi pears until the end of May next year."
