This is a new hybrid fruit, released in Sainsburys' stores in June 2012. The name suggests a cross between a pear and an apple, but this isn't the case. There are different pear species involved in its parentage, and all these species are
involved in a multiple backcrossing. The outcome is a fruit called T109, bred by Plant and Food in New Zealand.
