"Bambinella" is a fruit. It is a miniature "pear" no bigger than maybe 1 1/4 inches high and about 1 inch circumference at its widest part. It has pale yellow skin with a red blush in some areas. It tastes sweet (but not too sweet). It doesn't taste like any other pear I've ever tasted. Although some people think that the "sugar pear" is the "bambinella" - it is NOT. Totally different fruit although similar, and much smaller. "Bambinella" is indigenous to the island of Malta, in the Mediterranean. Although they may have some bambinella trees in Sicily. The "bambinella" tree will also grow in colder countries - like Canada. We have one growing in our backyard and every August we enjoy lots of "bambinella" - (plural is also "bambinella").Every year our neighbours look forward to August when they can once again enjoy the delectable taste of this miniature pear.
