The Ya pear or Chinese white pear is a type of pear. It is found in northern China, where it is grown for food. These are very delicately crunchy, juicy, white to light yellow pears. They taste like a mixture of a rose and a pineapple.

Ya pears can be found in shops outside China. In these shops they are called Asian pears or Chinese pears.
