The Nashi Hosui is a variety of pear originated in Japan. ''Nashi'' can be translated by ''pear'' in Japanese. Golden-bronze colored and shaped like an apple, it is often called ''apple-pear''. Considered a high quality juicy and sweet fruit, Nashi Hosui combines the crunchiness of the apple and the sweetness of the pear. Kaki, also called Persimmon, originated in China. It is among the oldest cultivated plants. It has been known to be used in China for over 2,000 years. The word kaki was borrowed from the Japanese kaki no ki, literally kaki tree. It was first introduced to Europe (France then Italy) as an ornamental plant, but around 1860, Kaki began to be known as a delicious fruit fit for consumption. Kaki requires full sun to fully mature and ripen. It is yellow-orange, thin-skinned rounded fruit with slightly flattened end. Its pulp is orange, sometimes reddish. Each fruit may bear between 1 to 8 seeds. The flavor of the Kaki is rich and sweet. Its texture is marvelously soft and unctuous.
