Pyrus pyrifolia - Shinseiki Asian Pear
Crispy and juicy round fruits. Asian pears are a good choice because of their tough skin which can resist many pests that apples cannot. These trees can easily become overloaded with fruit, bending the tree or worse breaking branches. Thin the fruit to reduce this risk as well as grow larger and tastier fruits. 'Shinseiki' is a vigorous and disease resistant cultivar that matures at a young age. Flavor is juicy, crispy, and sweet. Plant with another Asian pear variety to achieve pollination and get fruit.
