Bae is Asian Pear in Korean language. Bae is a fruit that looks like a very large apple with the yellow-orange-brown color of an over-ripe Bartlett pear, although the skin is thicker and rougher than a Bartlett pear. The meat of Bae is as crisp as a juicy apple with the gritty texture of a pear and the flavour is somewhere in between apple and pear. These Asian pears are typically prepared by removing the skin to prevent the transfer of whatever residue of pestiside left with the skin, if there is. Bae is a seasonal fruit in Korea, hence if they are not in season but are still available in fruit markets, they are rather expensive.
