Nispola refers to a Spanish exotic fruit found inland, along the fertile Tropical Valley where orange clusters of the nispola can befound on the trees. These succulent fruit were imported from the Far East in the 18th century and are mostly grown for local consumption. Their flavour is a curious blend of peach and pear, and they can be found on sale during early spring. They are often mistakenly called nispero when this is really the name for the tree.
Nispola is also known as Japanese medlar pear
