Krazulya or 'Beauty' in Russian is a fantastic tasting Russian developed pear. It is a small to medium sized yellow pear with an attractive bright red cheek. It is more roundish in shape and weighs around 80 to 100 grams. Taste wise, it has a juicy buttery texture with a sweet and slight spice flavour.

Typically known as a summer pear, the Krazulya is harvested around the mid to late August but they don't store any longer than a week or two. You can eat these beauties right off the tree which is rare for pears as most need cold storage to help ripen properly.
