ASIAN PEARS 

Hosui

Often thought as one of the best, Hosui is a large, golden russetted Japanese variety.  The flesh is crisp, juicy and very sweet. Stores well. A very productive and vigorous tree. Ripens in mid to late August.  Zones 6-9

Std.   1 Yr.     $27.00  


Olympic

One of the sweetest of the Asian pears having a high sugar content to the crisp, juicy flesh. The fruit is large, round and heavily russetted with an orange tint. After ripening, you can enjoy the sweet flavor for a long time since its storage life is very long. Ripens late Sept.  Zones 6-9.

Std.   1 Yr.     $27.00  


Niitaka

Described as having "candy-sweet" flavor, Niitaka is a large, orange-brown highly russetted pear with very sweet juicy flesh. The fruit keep well and are great for fresh eating and canning. Ripens mid - late Sept.  Zones 6-9.

Std.   1 Yr.     $27.00  


Shinko  

The most disease-resistant to fire blight of the Asian pears. Russetted bronze-green skin over medium-large fruit. The flesh is firm yet smooth, sweet and juicy. Known for its rich sweetness and distinctive flavor, Shinko is also a good keeper. Ripens late August.

Zones 6-9.

Std.   1 Yr.     $27.00


Shinseiki

This wonderful Japanese pear has a clearer (less russetting) yellow skin. The crisp, juicy white flesh has an excellent sweet-tart flavor. The tree is partially self-pollinating and vigorous bearing early in age. 

Ripens mid-late July. Zones 6-9.  

Std.   1 Yr.     $27.00  

 


Planting Information

Asian pears (sometimes referred to as "apple pears") are extremely juicy and crisp. Great for eating right off the tree, as well as a great addition to salads. These fruit are usually found in markets at a high price. Two varieties are needed for cross pollination. As with most pear trees, we recommend a good spray program that includes the use of Fire Blight (streptomycin) spray during bloom. Bearing is expected in 2-3 years. Plant in full sun with Orchard Starter Tablets, and fertilize in following springs with a complete fruit fertilizer. Recommended spacing is minimum of 15 ft. between trees.
