What do you call a pear crossed with an apple?

Apparently the marketing guys missed a trick when the agricultural geneticists crossed a pear with an apple to achieve a delicious crunchy pear. To be fair an ' appear' or 'pearple' doesn't exactly trip off the tongue! So forget the name the apple pear is a great product. I'll be truthful, I like the taste of pears but am not so keen on the slimey texture and for eating on the run the apple beats most fruit. Move over apples you now have a serious competitor and if I can source them in Guernsey – come on Waitrose- I will be remaking lots of my apple recipes with these. Come to think of it there is probably some EU regulation preventing Frankenstein fruit adaptations LOL.

        well the cool thing is that I was just trying to describe a pear to me son’s friend (who sadly could not recall ever trying one) and well, I was describing them to be like an apple, but not really – and I am going to show him your post next time they come over because I was like “it is sorta like an apple” and I told them it alkalized the body…. and then they were like “Huh?” but he did try two bites of a pear and so that was cool…. but the pearple sounds so good….
