WHYYs Friday Arts visits a lush Asian orchard, but doesn't need a passport. Subarashii Kudamono, a world-class producer of gourmet Asian pears, is right next door: its orchards are spread across several acres of the Lehigh Valley. Asian pears are not your average pears. Look at the surprisingly spherical fruit as it hangs on the branch and then follow its travels as it is picked, inspected, wrapped, and sent into the world. Subarashii insiders describe the patented varieties of Asian pears that they have carefully bred for rich, sweet flavors you won't find anywhere else. Subarashii Kudamono means "wonderful fruit," and these pear growers are serious about living up to the name.
