PEAR
Japanese pears are large, round, juicy and have a great crunch. Chiba Prefecture, which neighbors Tokyo, is known as Japan's largest pear producer. Every autumn, its so-called "Pear Street" fills up with farmers hawking their wares. Those farmers have thought up clever ways to make large, sweet pears, like growing branches across horizontal trellises that match the farmer's height. That lets the pears get plenty of sunlight and makes harvesting easier. Join us as we bite into Japan's world of pears!
