Shinko Nashi (Pear)/新興梨

Japanese Food
Just wanted to share some photos of shinko nashi (pears).
新興(しんこう)梨(なし)の写真を数枚載せます。 
Don’t confuse shinko nashi with niitaka nashi, which I previously talked about.
新興梨を、過去に話した新高梨と混同しないようにしてください。
That being said, I must say that the two varieties are quite similar in appearance and size. Shinko nashi have thicker skin, and can keep for long (about a month or so). 
とは言うものの、この二つの梨は外見も大きさも良く似ています。新興梨のほうが皮が厚く、長持ち(1か月程度)します。
Shinko nashi, cut in half.
半分に切った新興梨。

It may be hard to tell from the photo, but shinko nashi have thicker skin.
写真では分かりにくかもしれませんが、新興梨のほうが皮が厚いです。

So, what about the flavor? As for me, I like niitake nashi better because of their milder sweetness. But, I do hope you taste them both to tell the difference in flavor.
では、味は?私としては、新高梨のほうが、甘さがマイルドで好きです。でも、両方食べてみて、味の違いを知って欲しいと思います。
