It's prime time for Asian pears and lima beans at the farmers market

Pear
Asian pears, like many fruits, are available year-round from storage and imports. But they are really at their best during the heat of late summer and early fall, when their delicate flavor is freshest and a juicy, crunchy fruit straight from the refrigerator is most refreshing. (And if you can only choose one, David Karp says his favorite are the candy-bar sweet Shinseiki pears, seen above.) Also peaking this week at the farmers market: Fordhook lima beans, delicate, moist and sweet, from McGrath Family Farm of Camarillo, are back in season.
