Looks like an apple and tastes like a pear


The papple is a hybrid of European and Asian pear varieties known as Pyrus communis and Pyrus pynfolia respectively. It was named ‘papple’ as it looks like an apple and resembles a pear in taste and texture. Its green colour changes into orange-red once ripened. It is a new fruit which was developed in New Zealand and was released for public sale in 2012. It is a seasonal fruit available from late spring to summer.
