Quick Overview:

Enjoy high yields of sweet, delicious pears in late summer. This is a popular Japanese introduction with beautiful rounded fruits that are crispy like an apple when mature. Plant another variety of Asian pear close-by to ensure good pollination.

Description

Growing Asian pears is easy if you have a sunny, well drained site with a slightly acidic soil pH around 6.5. The trees are partially self-fertile and some varieties can share pollen with European pears, but it is still best to plant two Asian pear trees to enhance pollination.
