Nashi, an Asian delicacy for centuries, was originally brought to Australia by Chinese gold miners in the 1850s, now everyone can enjoy modern varieties of this
Produced commercially in Australia for the past 25 years, the locally grown Nashi is a marked improvement on the original varieties. A smooth green-yellow fruit picked ripe to eat, the major variety, Nijisseiki, is available in supermarkets and greengrocers from March to October.
About 90% of Australia’s Nashi production comes from Victoria’s Goulburn Valley, and some 20 commercial growers operate throughout the country. Represented by the Australian Nashi Growers Association, the industry produces around 4,500 tonnes annually.
