Thanks everyone
Yes, it is an actual pear that has been developed for the Chinese market specifically.

I appreciate the request for a link, but very few of them come from the net. Mostly from radio, T.V. or the papers. Will bear it in mind, though.

Apologies for the switching on of character identification, but as you may have realised I was beginning to get blitzed with spam.

I was going to say that "chinese pears" look more like apples. Must try and see this new specimen.

Chinese sweetie pear, cool. As for the word verification I have always kept it on mine as I don't want spam, so if other blogs have it I am okey dokey with it.
