Friends from Scotland introduced me some years ago to the delight of eating pears with parmesan cheese; something I have done ever since. A few weeks ago I was given a couple of nashi. A nashi, for those who are ignorant of the term, is a fruit resulting from crossing an apple with a pear. It seems generally to be met with scorn amongst those with whom I am acquainted. I was advised to eat it cold from the fridge. Yesterday I had one with shaved parmesan. The texture of the nashi was similar to that of a Packham pear but without any flavour. Or perhaps the flavour is so subtle that it eluded my tastebuds.
