 About the Shinseiki Asian Pear:

Round, medium to large, yellow smooth-skinned fruit with little or no russet. Crisp, creamy white flesh; mild, sweet flavor. Tastes best when tree ripened. Hangs on the tree in good condition for 4-6 weeks. Earliest to ripen.

Asian pears combine the flavor and sweetness of pears with the crunchiness of crisp apples. Also known as pear-apples, salad pears, and crystal pears. Cold hardy, drought resistant, heat tolerant. Susceptible to fire blight and codling moth. Fruit should be thinned to one per spur. Plant 2 varieties for best pollination. Harvest 2nd year.

Plant multiple Asian Pear trees for best pollination.
